    Default Anybody own a petrol Kia Carnival/ grand carnival?

    Hi
    We are currently considering buying a Kia Grand carnival second hand aged between 2012-2014 we would like a diesel but they are hard to come by.

    Just wondering for those who own a petrol 6 cylinder version- how do you find they go on petrol? How much does it cost to fill a tank roughly and how many ks do you normally get?

    Any advice would be great.
    Thanks

    We just bought an 09 Grand Carnival, petrol. We did have a 4 cylinder 7 seater Kia prior.

    Fuel wise I don't find it too bad on fuel- certainly not as bad as I was expecting. It due chew a bit driving in town but generally I still only have to fuel up once a week to once every 10 days which is the same as my 4 cylinder. Cost wise I pay around $60-$70 to fill a tank from almost empty. We get about 300km to a tank in town driving, up to 500+ long distance.

    Honestly I can't fault the Grand Carnivals. They are an awesome car.

    I also have an 09 Kia Grand Carnival. Definitely recommend. It also costs me about $60-$70 to fill and I get roughly about 450km in city driving. I wouldn't want anything else.
