800km a tank is doable, even on a 325.

I'm at 306 miles on 40L and still have around 8-10 miles left. Surprisingly this is as good as with shell (I switched to sunoco 94 for this batch). The whole tank is 64L or 65L I forget.

Now a full tank of Shell 91 gets over 600km (9.6L/100km)
I have to do my O2's for sure.. But what Jay(mystikal) said driving around town in 5th over 50km/h.. that helps, my econo guage drops to about 5.5-6L/100km in 5th versus 8-9L/100 in 4th.

Right now did 370KM on a little more then half a tank...

800KM a tank is theoretically possible, but you'd pretty much have to stay on the highway.

65L tank / 800Km = 8.13 l/100KM

I've done over 800km on a tank with the S50.

Someone needs to trade a well maintained 328 with a stock diff to me for a week, I'll school all of you.

For the record, right now I'm at 580km and it just slipped under 1/4. And I've been downtown in traffic all week.

Best I ever got was 740km. This was only ever one time that I broke 700 and that particular tank was used approx. 90% on the highway.
