Mine is listed at 62 litres...the most I filled up was 59.5 L, nothing to write home about, but, I'm petrified of no gas in cars.

Bad experience years ago, scared the hell out of me

Now...never less then 25% empty and I fill... :P

Most people don't realize that running bone dry everytime is damaging to the car. I have a friend who did that on his old car, he always seemed to have fuel probs. Couldn't just be a coincidence.

I think it saves money too....(ie refill after 75%)

just got back from a weekend trip to NM. I put 500 miles on 17.3 gallons(28.9 mpg) gas light came on as I pujlled into station! That'* the most miles I've ever been on one tank of gas. Of course I paid $1.96 a gallon to fill it back up!
