I get 400 - 450km with a decent thrash and some highway driving. Worst I got was 300km with short drives. Wow 200 sucks, are all Rew engines like that?

The starts and stops in the Rotary are what kill its consumption. But great on cruise. Hence they're liked in planes. I could get 500k to a tank sitting on 110km/h easy. I could barely get 300 in city driving. City/Freeway cycles make a huge difference.

+1 for me. When I was living closer to the city, with only VERY short trips in the car, i was getting around 30L/100kms.
Now that I'm a bit further out, more motorway driving, its sitting around 17 :)

No the REW was similar in consumption to the Renesis prior to Bridgeport and larger single turbo set-up.
It uses twice the fuel but that is for nearly twice the power.

More power=more petrol combusting.

That makes sense but ive never considered it before. Would my habit of "coasting" when in slow traffic and down hills in an attempt to be mechanically sympathetic to the car actually be contributing to my already terrible fuel consumption?
I got the habit from the bridgeport car that lurches and chugs along like it's having a fit at low speeds.
