Yeah, there's an 80 litre tank in those. It gives you the illusion of getting better fuel economy between your fillups. I was near empty, the ever so helpful man (obc) had advised me in a rather stern voice, 'warning, fuel level low'.

I'll get 525 (29.9 mpg) miles at most out of that fill, but its often closer to 440 as I'm not the lightest on the pedal and I can be in traffic.
