1100 kms

I've seen prospects of over 900km/tank when achieving that 6.4l/100km and that was 100km into the trip.

Additionally, when at 6.4L/100km the displayed fuel economy would continue to drop if I kept going. I don't think I can get much better than 6L/100km with constant speed conditions.

So I will try a bit of pulse and glide, keeping the engine idling in the glide phase.

I'll be driving overnight, so traffic shouldn't be an issue.

I'll report back on Friday!
