Sounds about right.
My XD 351 ute is getting about 250km to a tank, and that's driving very conservatively. I must get around to putting a kit through the carby one of these days. They aren't the most fuel efficient donk around, but geeze they sound good!
Original XD 351 Ute - I got one!!
HSV - I just don't want one....EVER!
My XF 3 on the tree ute is ALWAYS stuck in third......
I get 17.5 mpg. It's in an XC ute but mind you, I drive fairly conservatively. It has also been fully reconditioned and is completely standard including the carter carb. Not sure of total out of a tank.
I have a 351C in a XD ute.

Sounds about right - I was getting 400kms on the highway out of my beloved XC 302 GXL manual (before the 5 speed went in). I never checked what the economy was around town as I was too scared (drove it for 20 years - now off the road to be rebuilt)
