What is the usual fuel consumption for these beasts. getting 32mpg (UK), or 7 lpg if you are in Europe. Sorry not sure what that equates to in US gallons.

Is this normal??

Who has the most fuel friendly jimny, and why??

Discuss.

Thanks for that. I hope you treasure your girlfriend. She is 30% more cost effective than my good wife. Our average is the same on a car that is a few months old. Anyone see their consumption improve as the car frees up after a few thousand KM??

Well As I am in Europe I have translated ur 32mpg to 32m (*1.609 km/p) per 1g(3.786lt)= 13.60 km/lt = 7.5lt per 100km ...which sound what the manufacturer promises and less. So it seems fine to me. My new 1.6lt 16Valve Vitara engine IN my old jimny gives 10.5 -11.5 lt /100 km !!!! (=22 - 20mpg !!!!!!!!&#33
