longest distance with one tank of fuel

Officially (Guinness World Records) it is 1582 miles driven in Croatia in June 2011 with a VW Passat 1.6 TDI. The vehicle was driven until it ran out of fuel. Yes this record could be beaten: I drove a OPEL Insignia 1.5 D around Germany in October 2022 with 'less than a tank of fuel' over 1526 miles (start and finish at the same pump station in Ruesselsheim, still some reserve fuel in the tank). Both cars have a capacity of ~ 20 USG of usable fuel in their factory tanks. OPEL was not interested in a new record since they stopped production of that ultraefficient 3 Cylinder sedan this year.
