Fuel consumption to expect for Europa S2?

Hi
I have an S2 and I am trying to find out how economically I can get the car to run if I want to take longer trips, and spending too much money

My latest consumption calculation resultere to be 4-5 km/l

Which fuel consumption can I get? I have to drive different and I think the engine have to be adjusted somehow.

Regards
Lars Lyngeled

Based on my Elan, which should get worse mileage than an Europa, minimum 30 mpg or 12 km/l. 40mpg or 17 km/l shouldn't unreasonable under good conditions.

Ok, thank you :-)
I was trying to drive with lowest possible rpm yesterday, until it stopped running. It can run with rpm at around 2000, much quieter and not so fun. I have heard that low rpm are bad for the engine.

But I must have the engine checked.
