    Right! my Fong Kong, 1st tank, 344km on 34.53 liters.
    That's as close as dammit to 10km/l or 10l/100km.

    Vehicle only has 480km on, so the consumption may improve.
    The 344km was done largely with no load, when loaded, it was only 300kgs odd.

    BTW, checked the tyres, they all showed 1.6bar on the garage gauge, I pushed it up to 2.4, that may help too...

    Of course, once the canopy & carrier, which weigh over 400kgs & offer wind resistance, are fitted, consumption usually increases by 20%...

    10L/100km seems fair! Doesn't a Canopy for most parts reduce drag?
    I'm with Pierre, what's fallen off so far? or are we not privy to such info

    So I drop a pen in the cab & can't find it. I look under the passenger seat & find a fire extinguisher in a cradle!!!
    I'm way impressed!, I pull it out (not like an extinguisher under the seat will ever be used).

    From the pic it looks like the gauge is in the red.

    They probably used it while it was in shipping.

    Did you get a good discount on the vehicle?

    The gauge even shows it's OK (needle on green). But then I notice the date...

    It's a translation mistake, remember they read right to left. The little ladder with two big rungs is 10. The next ladder with four small rungs is 4.

    10 +4 = 14.

    Interesting.
    Most vehicles speedometers OVERread.
    The Fong Kong UNDERreads.

    At 120km/h on the GPS the Speedo shows around 115km/h.
    At a 120km/h on the Speedo the GPS shows 127/128km/h.

    Going to get worse when I replace the 215's with 245's in a few years.

    The revs at a true 120km/h sit around 3400rpm - quiet high!
