    Icon7 505 SLi owners?

    Hi there,

    I enjoy my 505 SLi wagon - even with its three speeds and peculiar engine configuration. I was wondering how may other people on this forum are driving this oft-maligned Pug?

    Thought it would be interesting to see.

    Blizzardboy,
    Yes I have a 1986 SLi wagon & have done a lot of work on it. Enjoy driving it but wish it wasn't quite so thirsty. A 4 speed auto would be nice but the 3 speed is still acceptable. It has a rattly tailgate which I still haven't got around to adjusting.

    Default economy figures?

    What fuel economy are you getting? I get about 8.5 km/l around town and over 9.5 km/l on the open road running on BP Ultimate. Pretty reasonable I thought, for such a big car powered by only 2 litres.

    What state of tune is your engine in? (Duty cycle on O2 sensor, O2 sensor condition, timing, plugs, air cleaner, etc). Have you checked for cracks in the fuel lines connected to the fuel tank? Voltage to your fuel pump? When I purchased my SLi I was getting only 6km/l around town!!!
