I get about 400km's off a single tank (45L) so that roughly equates to 11.25L per 100km.I think it would be a bit less than that, as you don't use the whole 45L of fuel to travel those 400kms.

As a general rule, I would say add roughly 2-3L/100km for REAL world usage for a cars economy on top of the combined cycle.Than again how much you add really depends on where and how you drive it.The Daewoo Barinas have never really been particularly economical for a car of its size, though 11L/100km is a bit excessive. I lug around a 07 V6 and manage a average of 11.5litres and thats sometimes having a bit of fun off the lights.Thats pretty high for a barina I guess when you consider its a manual and 4cyl and much smaller and light weight then my car =\ and newer! The reason i ask is because supposably my barina does 9.2L in extra urban (the new word for 'city' driving) but i don't get near that.Hi, being a barely legal age i am a a new holder of P plates.I've had them for about 3 months now and my parents have bought me a MY10 Holden Barina sedan and it's going to stay with me until i can afford to buy another car when i can support myself.

I don't know why but even at this age im always so tight with money, i don't like seeing it wasted and i want it to go as far as i can.

Hence the following question: What is your REAL fuel economy (Litres per 100 km) of your car and compare it to the specified economy.

Please state car, make year, transmission, and L/100km The reason i ask is because supposably my barina does 9.2L in urban (the word for 'city' driving) but i don't get near that.

I get about 400km's off a single tank (45L) so that roughly equates to 11.25L per 100km. Im just wondering is this just a marketing gimmick or something?

I see other cars in the same price range getting about 5-7L per 100km in extra urban. and sorry if this seems like a stupid question to the more experienced.

Although having said that i got 25% off my barina so the other car choices weren't with me at the beginning. Really depends where you are living, how you drive, what car you have, etc.
