Hi,

Got a new sorento platinum and i have done around 2000KM on it. The freeway fuel usage is around 7.2/100KM and wondering whether its normal or I should get more ?

During easter break, I have driven around 800KM in a day and seen avereage fule usage was 7ltr/100KM.

Wanted to hear form other Sorento owners...

Cheers
Shri

Shri , you have not put what motor or size .
Is it petrol or diesel , & size . I have an 08 Sorento.
It is an 08 , first registered sept 09 , it has a 2.5 crdi (2.5 turbo diesel)
I have just clicked over 45k , so it is just starting to fully 'open up' .
As my experience with diesels for over 40yrs , they run tight for awhile .
I have not done any figures yet , but I am getting much better figures
than my 80series cruiser on gas & much much better than my old stumpy
paj 3l on gas . Did a trip from Coffs to Wagga Wagga , went west , Dorrigo,
Tamworth , Coona , Dubbo , dropped down , Molong , Junee , Young , WW.
Came home Hume & Pacific . As I did some climbing & rural roads as well as
110 zones & mostly light traffic . I was MOST pleased with consumption .
There was three , self , wife & 17y/old son & clothes for 6 days.

7.1 L per 100km on a trip from Newcastle to Perisher Valley with 4 adults on board lots of ski gear and travelling as fast as we could get away with...
Around the city about 10 to 10.5 L per 100km...
