On our last road-trip

hey guys ! not much girls here that I know of. ! LOL

anyway, I know we never discuss fuel usage or economic driving when it comes to Ferrari's but I just thought I'd share...

on our last road-trip, my 328 were dead-empty, fuel gauge not even picking up in a turn so I filled around 45 L

we drove in total 470 kilometers and the fuel guage light started flashing on a turn but went out and stayed just above empty driving on straight , earlier the week I took her our just for a quick drive and the fuel gauge still a little above empty, realising ! WOW I got around 10.5 - 11 kilometers per litre which is around 25 Miles per galon !!!

not bad at all ! I drove mostly around 75 MPH - 80 MPh (120 - 130 kph ) and open her up twice to three times to around 110mph around the long country side roards...

what do you think !

just some pics to show off a little ...

cheers

Means that you are not trying hard enough!

Your 328 looks gorgeous though!

Yep, try harder and you will have to start adding speeding tickets to your mileage cost.

By the way, how's your toe-heeling in flip flops?

Salve,
