Fuel Consumption

Just for fun, what fuel consumption are you guys getting at the track?

On my last track day I saw that I was using 17.2 L/ 100km -> 40.46 mpg.

It was at Mosport DDT and I wasn't driving the car very hard that day as there were too many people on the track so I don't know how it compares to my norm.

What about you guys?

Remarkable! My on-track consumption is 30 L/100kms. It does vary by track though - long fast tracks give lower consumption.

CORRECTION.
This is like the tower of Babel. We have some talking about imperial gallons and some US gallons.

How about 16.43 imp miles /gallon for the OP.10Litres/100kms is about 28.23 mpg.


I get between 5.5 to 7.2 imperial miles per gallon on track.At Mosport DDT I get the 7.2 and the big track I get the 5.5.To produce horsepower uses fuel

Huh? I think my post above is solid math, but what your saying still doesn't make sense...

16.43 imp miles = 13.68mpg not 28.23mpg.

For comparison 10l/100kms is about 28.23 miles per imperial gallon.

Sure it does as we use Imp gallons up here which are about 20% larger than US gallons.When i grew up before the days of metrification that is what we were taught.No not not another US vs Canada thread

That's what I get for using an unverified internet calculator...

My fuel calculator may also be including the impact of highway driving as well.. .it's saying 17.3L/100km after two hours of highway driving so maybe the 30L/100km is the right number as I was out of gas in less than 2 hours track time... guess 30L/100km is a more std measure.

I gotcha, I thought you were saying 16.43mpg(imp) = 28.3mpg. I misunderstood what you were trying to say. Still 16.43mpg is awfully high for any serious tracking imperial or not!

Who's turning it into a US vs. Candan thread? I love Canada and have family and friends that live there. My question would be, if you guys are converting to mpg, why are you using a system that is no longer in use(imperial)? I would assume if you are converting from L to gallons it would be US for all of us here south of your border...
