On a trip in the sprint 9l/100km was possible providing I used a very
light foot and didn't overtake with gusto. The 6cyl Fairmont is slightly
better but on a trip of 1000km it would equate to about $20 in fuel.

What people fail to look at is the other factors such as cost of
replacement parts etc. Try buying a new starter motor for some of the
new jap/korean cars and you will need deep pockets.

Yes...generalisation.....Because GENERALLY...a 2V Holden V8 will use
more fuel than a V6 in overall driving.
