450 kms is a little low. I did 521 kms to a fill up, and had about 4 liters of gas left in the tank. If I ran it to empty I might have got 475 to 500 kms.

When you say empty, what do you mean? Where is the needle on the gas gage? How many liters did it take to fill it up again? The fuel warning light comes on a 1/8 of a tank, not completely empty.

What year is your car?

Where are you from Joce? Why not take a minute and introduce yourself in the Introductions for New Members area?

What does 500 miles translate into KM? That'* what I got today. I know I'm being lazy when I could just go outside and flip the switch. But I'm in a hotel and the car is downstairs.

I dunno, that'* what I was driving, all highway. About 26 mpg is what I was getting. Of course I use better fuel than you. 93 octane and no ethanol in it. Unlike Iowa fuel that'* only 91 and has a lot of ethanol in it. That'* probably why you can't get that high
