Just about made it home running on fumes, I know I was driving slightly faster than normal and being second car in convoy we always use more fuel. So just wondering what mpg are others getting. I have a Ford ST170 engine on twin 45's set up by rolling road using a megajolt ECU and VVT pro. What could I do to get get better mpg bit still retain the fun element when required?
Hi Guys, A newbie here- always wanted one of these but didn’t have the space to build one so I finally bought one last month but having a few issues already. The fuel gage doesn’t work and is stuck on full- something I’m planning on fixing this weekend (assuming it’s not too difficult). But more concerning is the apparent fuel consumption- a full tank (about 30 litres I think) lasted about 60-70 miles (most of those miles were cruzing in a lowish gear on A roads). It doesn’t appear to be losing fuel when stationary and ticking over. Is this fuel consumption correct? Because unless my numbers are wrong that’s about 10mpg! It’s got a 2.1 pinto with Weber 38dges carbs. Any help much appreciated Cheers
All you experts out there, please HELP a newbie. My car is a GBS Zero with a 2L Zetec black top, only done 600 miles, recently purchased as a complete build from new parts. I believe it has two fuel pumps and also a swirl pot. I went for a nice run today (only hot day of the year) car was being starved of fuel, if left to cool down for a while then it was ok for 15 mins then lost power again. the engine was running hotter that normal about 95 deg and the fan had cut in. I am convinced that the fuel was vaporising, does any have any ideas how to overcome this or tell me I am barking up the wrong tree. If I don't reply for a while it is because I am going on holiday tomorrow, thanks in anticipation.
Smiths gauges in good condition, one bulb holder missing, I have a temp sender, but it is a large diameter thread. All senders are available form Smiths etc, will also need a voltage stabiliser to stop them fluctuating. £15.00 plus p&p for all three
