I'll report back when I'm in the states because right now I'm less than 300/tank. TheMack, you may need some minor maintenance..seafoam through the vacuum line and gas tank, fuel filter, plugs, wires, maybe the coils, clean the MAF, check tire pressure etc. My last road trip from ND to TX, I was averaging 350-370 depending on how much my foot was in it.

Jeezus.....I thinks a tutorial somewhere on here...i know there's some on youtube. coils are on the top of cylinders 2, 4, and 6. The wires run from the coils to cylinders 1,3 and 5. The plugs in the rear bank are easy....Cylinder 1, reach from the passenger side. 3 and 5, go from the drivers side. Dropped the spark plug socket into the hole, then the extension, the the ratchet. The fuel filter is on the drivers side, low, near the transmission. Find the fuel rails, follow the line down to the filter. Honestly, if you don't know where to find this stuff, you probably shouldn't be doing it, or at least have someone who knows show you these things so you don't damage anything

I recommend you take it to a shop, the flare nut that goes under the fuel filter strips easily. Save yourself the headache.

this is a nice guide, similar to what i did but i drilled and tapped the rails to fit a AN-6 fitting.. my question is whats the part number for the fittings you used? it looks like you found a -6 fitting that screwed right into the filter.
