Erm, CFi or MPFi? Stuffs me with the CFI, but my MPFi Falcon got about 500 odd kays off the last tank. Do a search, this topic has been covered plenty of time before!

If it's in mint condition and you drive in a standard fashion you should get about 450-500km out of the 68l tank. I personally get 350km out of a tank no matter how I drive!

Re: what mileage should i get

after getting some sensors fixed (the thing was running rich), my `89 CFI EA auto gets almost exactly 500km out of a tank of BP Ultimate. That's with a combo of peak hour slowness and freeway driving to/from work. I could probably get better if I got up a bit earlier and wasn't rushing to get to work every day

Re: what mileage should i get

As perkz said, the sensors tend to cause very high fuel consumption when they stop working.. My oxy sensor was gone and I got ~200km / tank of petrol for a while.. I basically just ran straight gas for months

TQE, SWB, ATPS, Worst of the E-series.. and I wouldn't have it any other way
