John and I both used 16L on that leg, translates into 12L / 100 KMS or 19.6 mpg. Interesting to compare my cammed NA LZ22 against the stock RB20T - he put down 100 hp more and gets the same mileage in the 240Z. It’s interesting Keith that you have similar displacement to me, put down double the hp to the rear wheels with 4.62 final drive and still kick our ass on the mileage... With a carburetor..... a rather small carburetor.....
One day you and I are going to run Gerry cans until we run out. And I’ll be inspecting your cage for a Smoke Yunic line to you roll bar! Or any other orifice you could be running 🤓

I looks forward to a fall run, but I think I’ll spare your environment and take Ole Blue.

Funny, I had actually wanted to run home till I ran out of fuel, just to see what a full tank gave, as we did have some wide open throttle sections. I got lazy as I did not want to stop and put 5 gallons in somewhere on the highway. That being said, I think I could have made it home, it would have been close.

My fuel economy stays pretty consistent...22 - 25 MPG...depending on those full throttle episodes.

I did use a couple of litres of methanol, which speaks to the throttle being WO for some time. The Similkameen mine hill uses the most, as it is full load as I snap it down a gear, as we head into that right hand sweeper at the bottom. Boost hits right away so both solenoids are open and the garden hose is flowing.

I'm only running 14 PSI boost, not my race mode 16 PSI. As good as Avgas is, I don't push the envelope.

Lets do that next trip, I always bring a 5 gal anyhow.

When you think how small the primary is on that Weber, and we live in that mode for the most part, it only makes sense the fuel economy is not bad. Even on the up-hill climbs, I can just dial up "O" or maybe 1 lbs boost and I can keep any speed on the primary without opening the secondary.

My roll bar is the nitrous tank....... :wink:
