Tank range 643 miles ??? I get around 250-300 is this normal? I have only done 850 miles in my XF, do I need to hold on a little bit longer to see the 600 mark?

i normally get a tank range of around 500miles according to the display, but then i'm only getting 34mpg cos i'm either crawling on the m25 or i'm enjoying some spirited driving on other motorways.

I've had it close to 600miles before when i would drive the car in an economical fashion but then i decided that it was more fun to drive the other way!

The offical figure is "Tank range 643 miles" not touch it yet, will it ever happen?
Most of my driving is town driving, 400 miles on a tank would be good?

You won't achieve that figure until the engine has loosened up. Compared to the 2.7D engine in my first XF the new 3.0D S seems "tighter", so it could take at another 5K miles plus. On two identical 800 mile journeys to Munich with 1200 miles on the odometers of both cars my 2.7D PL, averaged 35.3 mpg outbound and 37.5 inbound. The 3.0D S Portfolio averaged 33.2 outbound and 34.4 inbound, admittedly there were headwinds both ways.

With 7,000 miles on the clock my average for mostly urban driving is 23.6 mpg. 600 miles on a tank would be great :eek:

I get 40+ mpg on a long run (200 or more miles) but normal usage (to and from work) I only get high twenties, around 27 mpg at the moment. My tank range is around 400 miles, usually.
