Default fuel consumption

hey all
just wondering how many k's u guys r gettin out of a tank. i use 98 octane and get about 400 - 450km with 1 bar left....i dont like it gettin this low but wanna see how many k's i can get.
Also, when i fill the tank, the digital display always has the last 2 bars un-illuminated (is that a word?) think its jus a prob wit the display cos it takes ahiwle to drop the 3rd bar last bar if u know what im saying.
P.s i know fuel consumption is all 2 do with how u drive the car, tire pressure etc, but i was thinkin id get more than 400-450km out of a tank....

i get around 450ish with 1 or 2 bars left ... once there are no bars left and just the fuel light on im at about 470ish ... but there's still approx 7-10L left in the tank.

usually by half tank im at 250kms.
the most ive gotten is just over 500kms

here's a shot i took at half tank lol

you guys should try working out L/100kms, it would be more accurate that way...

Using the gauge on the dash is far from accurate. Park on a slope and you'll find you'll have more petrol.

I average 10-11L/100kms. Mainly city driving...

I average about 9.4-9.8L/100km.

Sometimes get about 10.5L/100km but also got 8.5L/100km once with maybe 50% freeway driving

I'm getting around 9.1 with all highway driving, speed varies
Between 100and 110


I expect if I use full reserve it would be around 550 to the tank
