Usually about 300ish.

Best is also 325, not sure what the worst is - I rend not to look when I'm ragging it.

Drive an Evo and you get about 150!!

Hmmmm....I would have thought the 4Mo would have slightly better fuel economy than the R32, but I struggle to make my tank last more than about 275 miles... Perhaps I'm a bit too heavy footed!

The R32 may be more efficient with it's variable length and timing thingummies?

The 4Mo has VVT too y'know! [:)]

Best was 367 miles and I ended up putting 63 litres of fuel back into the car - therefore it was about as empty as it can be.

Worst 240 - that hurt....but was fun [:D]
