Fuel Guzzling

What sort mileage do other owners of EL2 XR8's get around town?
Mine seems to hover around around 350km's when the fill me up light comes on.
Any replies?

Depends how heavy my foot is at the time!

Usually I get about 450-500k's out of mine, (EL2 XR8 5 SPD) but like I said, if you give it to it all the time that figure drops pretty quick.

Mine (manual EL2XR8) gets anywhere between 350 and 450 around town, it's been closer to 350 lately. I've done the old "disconnect battery" trick to re-teach the ECU so I'll pass on the results in a few days time once it's back in.
