    997 MPG????

    anyone seen a claimed mpg for the TT [or for the gt3 aswell?]? Pierre got 16.1 for 100,000 miles in his 996 TT which aint too bad...

    TIA

    Re: 997 MPG????

    GT3
    19.9 l/100km (14.2 mpg)
    9.0 l/100km (21.4 mpg)
    13.0 l/100km (21.7)
    Emissions 307 g/km

    Re: 997 MPG????

    But... you get a bigger fuel tank on the GT3....

    Re: 997 MPG????

    Who cares about MPG on cars like this? Doesn't one just adopt the LA mantra of using 87 oct when one has "cash flow issues"???

    Keep in mind equivalent cars get about 1-2 MPG less in CA vs NYC due to fuel diffces (so EU MPG figs may be difficult to interpret vs CA fuel)....and consider that 997C4S seems to have a 1 gall larger fuel tank than 996.....presumably 997TT will have similar fuel tank cap incr.....

    Sure, F has more appropriately-sized fuel tanks than P....but which fuel tanks are more collision-resistant?

    The range also doesn't seem to be much different. Ferrari 430 has a bigger consumption than the 996TTS, so the difference in range in the end isn't all that big.

    Re: 997 MPG????

    I don't think mpg is really important in this market. The range of the car is important for those who use their cars on long trips. I for one would have ordered a bigger tank had it been available. Why? Because in Europe on Autobahns, Autostrada and Autoroutes at high cruising speeds, or in the hills, the range on the standard tank is poor. With a TT it must be worse! At least the GT3 gets a decent tank.

    With a 4WD car Porsche obviously can't do much because there's no space. But on the 2WD cars they should give us the choice of the bigger tank.

    BTW, the f430 has a 95 litre tank. The turbo gets 67. IMHO the difference is more than any potentially better mpg of the TT.

    Yes, that's true. The new Turbo consumes roughly 16 litres per 100 km, while the F430 consumes roughly 19 litres per 100 km (according to most tests).

    So the range would be around 420 km for the Turbo and around 500 for the F430. A difference, for sure, but not as large as fuel tank size would lead you to believe.

    Re: 997 MPG????

    I'd be surprised if either were that economical!! Certainly the TT if what you say is true is surprisingly close to my C2S!

    Mind you it's entertaining on a long run to overtake the same 530d or 320cdi several times...
