Default GXP Gas Consumption

so i was wondering how many km or miles do you GXP owners get out of a full tank in the city out of your GXP? i know the tank is 70 liters, so prolly out of 63 or 64 liters before you fillup

please post the numbers up
i dunno if this is normal or way too low, so thought id ask
i get 360 to 380 KM max if i drive it good, and somewhere between 310 to 330 KM if i'm pushing it a little

you should stick to mpg or lpg for comparison, miles per tank adds alot of variables like how long you wait to fill, etc. and bonnys have a bunch of weight and highwaygears so in the city with a 8cyl you cant expect much

I get 18-19 mpg with city driving and 26-27 on the highway. If I hammer on it or get pissed off with slow drivers it goes down an mpg or so. I can't really complain about the mileage since this V8 has the get-up and go I need. I did notice my mileage improve when I switched to full synthetic oil after the second oil change. I also put Shell V-Power fuel system cleaner in the tank once every quarter.
