Want to see something crazy?

The local council in my town lowered the speed limit in built up areas to 40km/h so i thought i should see how my hotted up ls1 powered god machine handles this kind of situation when it comes to fuel usage.
>23l/100km (10mpg)
kek
are lowered speed limits because of idiots on their phones really doing this much damage?
Thats about 8l/100km more than i would use if the speed limit was 50km/h.

            Prius uses as much fuel per 100km as my motorcycle while cositng 4x as much and decreasing in value the entire time i own it instead of increasing in value?
            why would i buy a prius?

      Imagine thinking you could convince me that buying a ute with an LS1 engine was a bad decision kek
      My stock standard LS1 powered sedan gets 14l/100km on the same roads, i ain't mad, what?
      You want me to drive my ford laser because it gets an entire 10l/100km on these same roads with its 1.8 litre engine? kek

          For the record if i want fuel efficiency i will ride my xjr1300 motorcycle that gets 6.5l/100km if you don't rev it past 5k.

          Here is what a 219/227 Crow cam sounds like through stock standard exhausts

          Now imagine what the car in the OP sounds like with 2.5 inch extractors linked to a 3 inch straight system with 3 resonators, talk about snap crackle pop.

    Lowered speed is more efficient if electric. What kind of garbage engine gets less efficiency at slower speeds?

        Doesn't really matter because at high speeds wind resistance uses even more energy.
        Which is why EV distance records, like the Model 3 that was driven 600 miles, are set driving slowly but consistently.

        problem with big engines is economy in heavy city traffic. V8 can easily go up to 30l/100km in heavy commuter traffic.

    probably old farts and people who never spend a significant amount of time behind the wheel who cant drive for shit and think all roads urban and rural should be 40 at all times.
    There's a section of road here that has had roadworks for what feels like a year now, there's signs everywhere saying '60 road work' but everyone does 40 anyway. At least it has a radar speed sign in both directions. My highest score was 75, I'm not sure if my speedo reads 5 more than my actual speed, or if the radar sign is just being conservative lol

        Well I can hear it gurgle a bit when in 5th gear and downshift delay is kinda long. It wants to stay there.
        Sport mode keeps it above 2k and light touches spin the wheels. Not something you want in bumper to bumper morning commute. Regarding blow ups can't really find anything excesive for 2L gen3. Not that im worried.

    why the fuck you obey such a low speed limit? That's literally not even 25mph. To put it in perspective, the roads near my neighborhood are all 40-45mph....it only slows down to 25mph in the school zones and only during certain hours. Your speed limit is even lower than that
