i don't know if its just the thought of fuel prices going out the roof or cars are getting less economical, but i seem to be using more and more fuel these days.

i filled the ek up to the brim the other day, jut over £40 (used to be under £30 but not going into that) and i only managed to pull 305miles before she started to stutter, that was motorway driving at 75mph from coventry-gatwick-swindon and back to coventry on sunday, i swear at that speed i used to be able to do a million miles!!

does anyone else think their car is drinking more??? :'(

It depends totally on how you drive your car. I don't get to drive mine during the week, so on the weekend I rag it. I can easily use up £35 every weekend.

I use £20 every 1.5-2 days, if I decide to hammer it then thats quicly down to a day :'(

K pro does increase miles to the gallon on a stock car as it runs rich from the factory. Problem is most ppl with k pro also have a few mods and so the gases flow better and the consumption goes up again.
