what mileage do you guys get on the highway just sitting on 100/110??

500 kays from a wagon, I would have thought it would be nearly double that, aren't they 75 litre tanks?

best I got was 730 odd out of a tank from townsville to rockhampton. air con on and stinking hot day.
So i would have thought down south it would be a bit better.
and thats in a sedan with a smaller fuel tank too.

before service 650k's after service 250k's on the highway doing between 100/110
i thought i could be from the new leads that i put in but also i found a hole in the muffler but i doubt that id use that much fuel with a little hole there.
but i know that i have a problem with my bcm (interior light stays on for an hour and when i have the headlights on my right tail light stays on like i have a foot on the break but the left one works properly) could it be linked to that. and the car is stock as a rock only with a 2 1\2 inch sports exhaust from cap back which i had for 5 yrs.

not sure wot mileage i get at high way speed live manily and drive in urban areas
when i first got the car i got about 600k's out of the 72 ltr tank on regular petrol but now i only get like 400k's thats when im crusing at about 50-60km/h and the few times at 100km/h
i have just changed the fuel pump and filter
got all new oil, leads, spark plugs and gaskets

but when the tank is full i can drive about 120 k's and the fuel gauge drop a 1/4
then it take like 200k's to drop 1/4
then last half goes in about 100 to 150k's
