How about 1,478 miles on 12.4 gallons of diesel?

I routinely get more than 630 miles per tank, but that requires over 23 gallons.

630 miles > 1,000 kilometers.

If I had a Fabia Greenline (and some sponsorship) I would seriously give it a go. Alternately I think Vekke's Cordoba could probably manage it, and carry some freight at the same time

Heck, at 20mpg, I'd suck my 23 gal tank bone dry in a bit over 450 miles.

...and I couldn't ever go close to a K, my longest tank was 556.6km (345.9mi).
But this is a 15l (a bit less than 4 gallons) tank.

Since we're starting to split hairs, maybe we should define the mile we are talking about:
1 statute mile = 1,609.344 metres
1 survey mile = 1,609.3472 meters
1 nautical mile = 1,852 metres

Thankfully, in the metric system 1 meter = 1 metre

So I propose a nauti-kilo (nauti tank?) goal of 1850km between the 1000mi (1600km) kilotank and the 2000km bi-kilokilo. Groar, you almost licked it!

Or here in the USA where most medical is metric and the civilian population uses english measurement except of course for volume among others.
If cars were fueled by ale, then British gas pumps would measure in pints...
But that's a long story. In the US, you buy milk in gallons and soda in liters. Automotive tire sizes are the same world-round, ie tread width in mm but hub diameter in inches. But mountain bike tires are in inches only (2.1x26) while road bike tires are in metric (700x25). Go figure.

And that's why some of us can do 1000km without trying, while others will struggle just to get to the next gas station.
I once talked to the owner of a car like mine, only he had the 2.0 diesel instead of my 1.6 diesel. When I told him I once got over 1650km on a tank, he replied that he's done almost 1500km once or twice. This was hard to believe, as he has no aeromods and isn't into hypermiling. Then I found out he has a 70 liter tank, which is 20% larger than mine (58l). With 70 liters I could scratch 2000km.

I wonder what's the average mpg(imperial, of course) of Her Majesty's car fleet?

I probably could trouble the kilokilo but that would mean straying into the red on the gauge, and all the surging and palpatations that go with it!!!

My tank is 45 litres, so roughly 12USgal.... as I said diddy. I'm quite proud I'm dragging 530-540 miles out of it regularly - I know there is another gallon and a half in there I just don't have the stones... Running a diesel on fumes is russian roulette, especial if you starve it!

you have no turbo and no high pressure common rail:-) go for it!

although as long as the light comes on consistently you'll not really feel whats left in the tank.,

What was the final figure arragonis?

Unfortunately I had to fill up on Sunday at only 550 miles due to being on the road for the second half of this week and having no chance to go near my normal garage.

Doh.
