Our BA averages 13.9. I thought yours could get a bit lower. Try resetting your average L/100 and use a different driving style and see how you go. Your petrol until empty reading fluctuates according to your driving style and conditions.

Are you using 91 or 98 octane? If you're using 91, you'll get f!ck all km from a tank lol my BA sits on average of 14.3 using 98 octane, and I thrash the f!ck out of it most of the time. But I still get 550 to a tank on the cluster, and around 450-500km in real usage. If I take it easy, it will get 500+ around the city, and 750 on the highway sitting @ 110km/h. It's 90% driving style lol
