    Ultraguage gives that info in gal/hr. I can post it up tomorrow if no one does before then. I think it's like .4 gal/hr if I'm remembering correctly but don't quote me on that, my memory is a little rusty...

    During the cold start-up it burns 1.5 to 1.6 gallons/Hr. ... after 3 minutes or so when it's reasonably warmed up it burns .4 to .6 gal/Hr.

    ... at least that's whay my UltraGuage indicates.



    **edit** I didn't realize this thread is super old. :eek:

    Super old, but technically no one answered the old question either :)

    Winter cold with conventional oil, figure 1.6-1.7 gal/hr coming down to about 1.4 gal/hr pretty fast. Synthetic will start around 1.4-1.5 and fall. In the summer I've seen cold starts as low as 1.2 gal/hr.

    Fully warmed up idle, 700 rpm, no a/c, that's 0.33 gal/hr. With a/c, about 0.40 gal/hr. Figure at least 15 minutes of driving for it to get that low.

    The 1300 rpm idle that it likes to do if in neutral and over 10 mph, that's 0.60 gal/hr. Odd behavior here - if the a/c kicks on during high neutral idle, it'll still be 0.60 gal/hr, but rpm will drop to about 1000.
