expect average mix of driving city and long distance to get anywhere between 10-12.5ish L/100 depending on the condition of the engin and the quality of petrol you are getting (too many variables to pin point it). On the freeway i get about 850-900kms out of a tank. Around town 550-600. Costs about $70 to fill it.

I would like to know what you guys do to get 800+ k's to a tank, mine gets 620 to a tank freeway and around town gets about 400 at the most.
The reviews all came in at around 11l/100k which would equate to around 600k's to a tank....
Please explain...
