    My read is my missus has a crap driving style and a lead foot, most of the fuel burn overrun goes out as unnecessary brake pad wear - charging up to a stop sign and chucking everything out expecting the thing to stop from all noise in 20m...
    Your Mrs must get around a lot in many different vehicles, I see heaps rushing up to a stop or give way sign like they’re not going to have to stop - then throw out all anchors at the last two seconds.

    And also see lots tailgating ahead of me and brake lights blinking on constantly….

    Unless they have changed the reading on the dash is recent average not lifetime so 9l per hundy round town is probably pretty fair.

    Fuel consumption and depreciation on my '17 XLT Ranger? Who cares- compared to my AMG sedan, it's basically nothing. The diesel mileage still pisses me off on the ute though.

    HAHAHAHA - that vehicle has done 3200km. I shit you not, 3200Km from new... That's why the mileage is lifetime average on that vehicle I reckon - the thing is so new it's rattling between 106l/100 and 5.2l/100 (when I'm driving it).
