    Just got 606 miles from a full tank of fuel before the reserve light came on.

    Anyone do any better?

    What engine is it? Thats a light right foot you have regardless! Best I can get out of my 170 quattro so far is 460 miles before light pops up. Still loosening up the engine so hopefully it will hit 500!

    140 Diesel

    Do a lot of motorway miles so it's not too difficult to get decent fuel consumption. Been trying for a while but usual give up when boredom starts settling in and the need to get home arises.

    I get 500 miles to a tank from a 170. Doesn't involve anyway motorway driving either so imagine it would go up with a few longer journeys thrown in.
