You are a bit out on your maths Alex... 0.78p/litre is 3.56UKP or $5.68 at
$1.60/UKP.

To drag this topic kicking and screaming back towards the list topic, as
many engines over the past 10 for 15 years have used computerised engine
management systems, why have we not seen much improvement in specific fuel
consumption? I would have thought that the systems would be able to run
the engine at optimum mixture and thus give a significant improvement in
economy.

What processors have been used in these systems over the years?
