I've also heard that the PV6 is quite a fuel guzzler... some said cannot go beyond 400km full tank for town driving. Can somebody confirm this?

If u have 5 people in the car and moving at snail's pace for the whole fuel tank, maybe cannot get laa...

If not 450kms / full tank shud not be an issue. I can get 550kms for mixed city & highway driving. Purely PLUS driving should give more.

the PV6 will certainly guzzle fuel when pushed hard.

After I shifted ofice to KLCC the fuel consumption is approx 450kms with mixed driving compared to 550kms when I was based in PJ.

If you compare the manufacturer's fuel consumption figures (for both V6 and SEi), the V6 consumes marginally less fuel.

Is there a reason behind this or was the testing done on highways only, and the 6-cylinder engine is probably more efficient that its 4-cylinder sibling on the highway?
