    Ive just done a 759 km drive from germany this morning on one 55 litre tank,but a third of it was driving at 100 mph. So prob bit better if I drive at normal 120 km limit all d way. So reasonable guess would be same as dragon green about 500 miles. I only fill my tank with v-power 100 or ultimate 102.

    Marders ate my corrado!

    1990 G60 red-Now 20vt....298bhp and 304lb/f on Aral 102 octance on 30 PSI boost and crazy timing!!!

    Never really thought about it. I didn't buy a Corrado to do economy runs. If it gets to just under the quarter mark I shove in some more petrol.
    You're never too old to own, and drive, a Corrado - Alpine White 1990 1.8 16v gone to a new home.

    Current mode of transport Citwrong Pigasso, not for long I hope.

    The older I get the more I recall how little I knew when I knew it all.

    As above- all late (post 1992) cars have the 15 gal/70 litre tank.

    Valvers are very hit and miss with mpg. My first two would get up to 40+mpg on a long run. I've had a couple since that were running perfectly, but didn't get anywhere near that and were pretty much the same as every VR I've had. My G60 was consitantly the best for mpg.

    i'll get about 350- 400 miles to a tank but allot of that is driving on my own to work and then allot of short evening runs ect so mixed driving

    i often see over 40 MPG(my highest being 47mpg) ......but even if i give it some serious bean, i dont often see less than 30 which is very good really

    i think it also depends of how many people are in the car because when im four up i really strugle to break 30's lol + correct tyre pressures make a huge difference i find

    This will all make you laugh I get roughly 180 miles out of £70 in the skyline

    Although since the terra clean it has been better, took it for a long drive yesterday topped up with £65 worth of v power and done 210 miles with 3rd of a tank still left, and thats with quite alot of full boost runs down the dual carriageway (1.4 bar boost, 100+)

    Gone are the days of 350+ out of a tank for me......
