I was quite shocked with the fuel economy of my car on Friday. I was doing some errands, and needed to refil my car just before I came up to the shell service station on Lane Cove Road. I have heard the place described as THE MOTHER SHIP in reference to 1950’s SciFi movies.

Anyway when I filled up I found I only needed about 40L of fuel – I guess that is what happens when you fill up as soon as the light comes on. But what was more interesting was that I had done 550km. This is about 7.3 L/100Km. Quite good really.
