    good milage on a V8

    just wondering whether it is possible to get a decent millage out of a V8. take a monaro for example, parkers say that it will get 19 mpg (not sure what that is based upon) but if your doing mainly motorway miles (70-80mph in 6th gear) , will the mpg be pretty good like around the 30 mark or is that just plain impossible??

    cheers

    my supra is only a 6cyl 3.0 and that gets nowhere near 30mpg, unless i'm going downhill with the clutch down
    Used to own Astra Coupe 2.2, Supra 3.0 Turbo, Supra MK4

    I drive a 600+hp Monaro. At constant 80 gets circa 26-27mpg. I average 23mpg. Worst I get is when doing cold start in town 6 mile commute, 19mpg.

    PS

    Track was down to 12!
