After fitment of the following to my M35
1. Power intake duct
2. Fujitsubo legalis cat back exhaust
3. Scotty stainless dump pipe
On a recent trip I got 7.6L/100k. That was cruising down the Princes from Melbs to Bairnsdale (possibly with tail wind!)
I was running United 100.
Awesome! Had to re-do the calcs a couple of times!
I've done similar economy on highway trips (down to apollo bay for example), not giving it the berries and taking it easy.


I’m really hoping I can achieve close to that once it’s gone in for a few bits. Downpipe and a full service (will replace o2 at same time) and I’m hoping it’ll be less thirsty!

Both my PNM35s seem to be about the same fuel economy. Seeing 8.8l/100km on the (windy, hilly NZ) open road up to just over 12l/100km in stop/start traffic. Considering factory 50/70 economy rating is 12.5l/100km I'm quite happy with what I'm getting. I'm not babying them either.

I was getting 300-320km a tank until recently in the S2 auto, was hovering around 16->18L/100km.

Change of spark plugs, cracked/hardened vacuum hoses and air intake hoses now down to 14.2->14.8L/100km and getting 400km a tank :)

I’ve only used one full tank and got to 450km before the light came on but I changed the coils and plugs last night so I’ll see how it goes S2 auto RS4
