I give it death too. 

5spd, VG30E. 

Unrelated. 

Anyway, here's a picture of my first car that cost me less than my skateboard did at the time.  It's slightly more related.

That's why I mentioned that one on TM.  Identicar.

Nah all bar the Commy get 98

I run with the "uses less energy to go futher" rule of thought (91 tries harder to move the same lump : similar to a small Turbo is more efficient than a bigger motor)

& yeah as mentioned really really short runs on average no more than 5km ( I go home for lunch too)

I use 91 in my Starlet and get 6 L/100 km on open road without being nice to it and around 7 thrashing it around town (was pretty similar with carb, maybe 0.2-0.5 more). Hilux also gets 91, does 9 L/100 km open road and like 11-12 in town.

Surely you only really need 98 in something with heaps of compression? / I'm just too poor to use 95 or anything

are these actual figures or once in a while calculations figures like the Fuelly, that I use to keep track of

& yeah I miss my Mk6/7 Escort so much for this point & which is why I want the Datto to run right as main focus currently

The Avenger still is (was) the most efficient, I know when @Borgweiser owned it (2x before me) he put a Single carb on it to ease up on the use of the Fuels
