Post Trip Gas Record - Even Better

As noted in the last post - the estimated fuel consumption according to the Scan Gage - was a day average of 10.1 Litres per 100 Km. The Gage calculated we used 36.9 Litres of fuel - but - the fill up only took 35.407, an adjustment from -12.6% to -16.7% on the gage fill up record, and - The total kms driven - including to get gas today - was 351.3 Km.

This means - the fuel fill/distance calculated fuel consumption was actually 10.07885 Litres per 100 Km! (99.79% of the Scangage reading) And - since the fuel consumption rating is hwy 9.8 L/100 Km ( Article!- See Articles Sidebar) - that makes me only 2.845 % more than the Canadian Ratings for the truck!

Don't forget - the right hand side of the foam was short 1 skin, and there is still a bit of a bump in the hinge line area to be smoothed out, and - there were times when the truck, running on cruise, kicked down a gear to maintain 110 Kmh on some of the steeper hills, shooting the instanaeous fuel consumption way up!
