Hi lads .My mate is looking to buy an ep3 currently and he asked me could I find out if a standard ep3 has simalar fuel consumption to a standard ek9 . I know it is a bigger engine but with it being ivtec , does it make much of a difference fuel consumption wise. also if your selling an ep3 in ireland , post the link in comments below and he might go look at it . thanks .

Can't remember what I used to get out the 9 both B16 and or B18...

B18 fully built with 4.785FD used to be around 28mpg on runs. It did do 32 once.

K20 should be better on fuel consumption, having 6 gears helps on longer journeys to raise the mpg.

thanks lads . the ep3 my mate is heading to look at tomorrow is a 2005 one for 4500 . I am not up to date on ep3's so do not know if this is in around the price they are making but he seems to think it is anyway.
