My ED has a 68L tank.

Can get anywhere from 150km to 750km per tank.

When stock I used to average 450ish per tank.

The best i have got combined (town and country driving) is about 540 km out of a 68 Litre tank. This is NOT hammering it though. Also mine is a manual which may be a bit different to the autos.

Current take is getting me 300kms.. However that is the worst fuel I've had in there ever!

Normal driving I get between 400-450kms.
