Hi Norlup.Yep, the fuel gauge is rubbish ! You have to trickle in the last 5 litres of fuel. And if you can get the gauge to read full, it will drop very quickly to the 3/4 mark.(after travelling a few kilometers.)
I think the distance to empty will go up gradually, the longer you drive. The litres of fuel per 100kms will take an instant calculation of current accelerator input. (this is after you have reset it by pushing in RH knob)
On a recent long trip (1800kms) I also was returning 8L per 100kms. Kms to empty after filling up was 720kms.
This is a 2012 2.4L 5 door Auto. Standard tyres, no roof rack.
I now pretty well ignore the fuel gauge figures etc. I never let the fuel tank get near empty, always keep it at least 1/4 full.
