How many Kilometers in one fuel tank?

Hi There,

I'm just wondering how many kilometers you can squeeze out of a full tank of fuel?

1998 2.5L Porsche Boxster.

525 ish km's is my best effort ever. That is a 3.2l Boxster S so not sure about fuel tank size differences (if any) and the difference in consumption based on engine size. This was achieved with city driving, not on the highway.

Average would be more like 450km though. I had to switch the car off at traffic lights and whilst coasting downhill to get 525km out of a tank.

I consistently get 320+ miles each tank without hitting E. That's over 514 kilometers. I've never kept track, but I know I can get 2 160 mile trips.
