How many kms do you get out of your gas-guzzler?

So I saw the thread about the kms/tank for corollas and there are people on there driving a certain speed because it's the most fuel efficient.. makes me laugh about corolla owners lol but anyways, for the rest of us that have cars that drink more fuel, how much do you get out of your tank?

I drive a Lexus IS300 and I can get 600km's on full highway driving, and about 450-500kms on city/mixed driving. 60L tank. That 23.5MPG on the highway and 18-20 MPG on city/mixed. Boooo.

My 2006 Chevy minivan gets about 500km on a full 75L tank.

2000 Explorer.....I don't wanna go there, we don't use it as much as the minivan but it's much heavier on the gas. When in 4wd mode, it's over 20L/100km.

Its still good compare to my 4WD

My Avalanche has a 117 liter tank, it gets close to 475 kms in city or 15-16 mpg. On Highway its between 17-19mpg. With a trailer its much worse.

But its still better than my brothers Navigator who barely gets 12-13mpg. Not sure about his tank size.

My 2006 Mazda3 gets me a 480-500km for about 45L of gas. While my 2004 G35 gets me about 520-550km for about 50L of gas (premium).

How to calculate your MPG
1. Go to the gas station and fill up the fuel tank.
2. Record the mileage, before even pulling away from the pump. We will call this Mileage A.
3. Drive normally until the tank is less than half full.
4. Fill up the tank again (preferably at the same station using the same pump as pumps may be calibrated differently). This time, pay attention to how many gallons it takes to fill up the tank. This is usually shown at the pump.
5. Record the mileage again, just like before. We will call this Mileage B.
6. Subtract Mileage A from Mileage B. This will give you the number of miles you drove since your last fill-up.
7. Divide your answer by the number of gallons it took to fill up your tank. This will give you your car's MPG.

Found this on Howwiki or whatever that website is called.

The last tank on my 09 Impreza sedan, which is AWD, was 7.4 litres per hundred with the low fuel light going on at 709 kilometres but that my friend was pretty much hypermiling it. That is about 38.2 MPG. Had 12 litres left in the tank which would have given an effective range of 871 kilometres and of course running to dead empty.

So you're getting 24l/100km? For a car that's rated for 17 city and 10 highway? Isn't that a bit much? :confused: Unless by "mixed driving" you mean "sometimes I don't go WOT".

Everyone I know that has one gets about 300km per tank on avg. LOL. I think the cold temperature this past few days really killed my consumption :( , I didnt make it to 300 this past tank.

Funny that you mention the 17 city and 10 highway, when I took delivery the salesman gave me the EPA sticker to frame and put on my wall so I get a good laugh everytime I see what a load of BS that is.
