just thought it would be interesting to see how different cars run and use gas. i have a 94 ed wagon and i can get anywhere from 350km (driving like the p plate driver i am) up to 530km freeway . now my gas talk is a 90l i think but i can really fill it up. car dont like petrol but thats not a problem.

hope to hear from people soon and see.

In my EB T5 Wagon, with the scuba tanks, I get around the 370km mark in mostly city driving conditions. After running the tank empty I can squeeze a bit over 64l of LPG in it.
