Hi,

I just bought a 1984 240 Sedan. It's a 2.1 L Canadian made car. When I filled up the tank today I divided my distance traveled with the amount of litres of gas consumed into a Km per L ratio.

Right now I'm getting 7.39 Km per L of gas. (about 17 MPG I think).

Is this what I should expect or is my old girl indulging a bit too much at the all you can drink gas buffet?

I'm looking forward to hearing other MPG or KPL statistics from people.

Thanks,

My 1988 240 does about 30 m.p.g. out of town & about 26 in & around urban areas so you may well have a heavy drinker, as a matter of interest I believe the Canadian cars were all fitted with carburetters & not fuel injected for what reason I do not know.

Take Care.
