Recommended Posts

Guest hdegroot

Hello,

 

 

 

I have an "77 C303 ex vattenfall, and i get around 3,75 km with 1L fuel is that normal? with mixed driving

 

 

 

Ive changed

 

-new fuel filter

 

-new oil + filter

 

-New air filter

 

 

 

it seems to run fine and does more than 100km/h on the speedo

 

 

 

seems a bit odd able to drive around 200km...i did run dry last week PDT_Armataz_02_15.gif having to get in 50 liter of fuel

My C303 clocks in on 2250kg, but now i have added around 2-300 extra kg onboard. With full load and 80liters of fuel, tire pressure at 2.2bar, keeping the speed around 80km/hour I think im around 1,9-2,0liter/10km. When she was empty (strait from the army) the fuel consumption was around 1,6-1,8, but then she was light.

 

I have notice that she is very thirsty above 80-85km/h, so keeping the speed low helps alot.

My fuel consumption is 3.2 litres/10km, mostly 70km/h driving. I thought it was normal but compared to Andreas it seems very high.

3.2 liter sounds high to me to. I was probably around that figure before i change the air filter on my car.

 

Put it this way. On 80liters of fuel I usually gets around 400-450km (note that this is on the road, and in Norway the roads is not that flat) PDT_Armataz_02_02.gif

PDT_Armataz_02_11.gif Strange that we seem to be the only countries here in Scandinavia that can work out fuelconsumption the right way. 3,75 km per litre gives a fuelconsumption of 2,57 litre/mile (1 mile= 10 km). It seems high.

To me aswell, i get as stated above 2.6 litres/10km... some fellow owners here say they can get 2 litres/10km ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(paying 1.30euro a liter :( )

 

 

 

i do get around 80km/h sometimes...it seemed faster before the oil and filter change

Work out the right way??

 

3,75 km/litre gives 2,67 liter/km. 1 mile = 1,61 km, in this case i equals 4,272 litre/mile. 1 Swedish mil=10 km.

PDT_Armataz_02_11.gif Your calculation doesn´t seem right 2,67 liter/ km and 4,272 litre/mile.

To confuse a bit more, the yankees talk about miles/gallon... European standard nowadays is litres/100km and let one of our trucks drink 20L/100km gives 11.5 miles/gallon.

 

When I made a roadtrip two years ago I drove 80km/h (50mi/h) Karlstad-Alvesta just stopping for eating once. 80L/380km gives 21L/100km. That was my bed truck 6x6 on road tires with 450kg camper, 6 terrain wheels with 4 of them equipped with chains on the bed, plus some other equipment and travel-stuff. But normally it consumed some 22-24L/100km shorter trips.

So i would say that we can state that a fuel consumption between 2.0 – 2.4 / 22.0 - 24.0 is what to be called normal. Anything under 1.8/18.0 is a lucky shoot, or the result of heavy tweaking of the system. But one day I will do a real test of my C303. Connecting a 5liter petrol can on the fuel line and then se how far I can go before Im out of fuel. But that will only help me, as every car is different.

 

But should we return to the problem, that “hdegroot†is having. A part from what you have described, it might be that one of the carburettors is not correct adjusted.

As Andreas says,, check and calibrate carburettors an ignitionsystem,

you can save many litres there,
