Driving up to QLD in 4 hours...so I will get back to you when I arrive on Tuesday (stopping in sydney for a day or so)...I am guessing about 600km per tank...considering I can get 450kms out of a tank metro with a bit of stick.

so if your guage is now showing 3/4 i reckon you used about 25-30 litres...

the guage soesnt even move for about 100km when im driving around the city, then it drops to 3/4 after another 100...

reckon u used about 7.5L/100km which is pretty good (and posible, i think)
