how many kms per tank??h

hey all i recently purchased a new daily

its a vt acclaim and gas, it goes good and has no issues on gas or fuel

but my main question is:

- How many kms do you get out of a tank
- How many Litres is your gas tank
- Average cost to fill
- you weekly fuel/LPG ratio (how much fuel used per tank of gas etc)

Mine has a 55ltr Donught style gas tank and it cost me $25 to fill from empty but i can only manage to squeese about 270kms per tank??

so ive got a plan...i filled my tank friday with gas and a full tank of petrol, so the gas has run out this morning and i was going to run it on petrol till half a tank, then fill it with gas again....Just wanting to know how everyone else does theres??

Cheers

picked up a VR 6cyl a while back, and at first I was getting around 300km from 50 litres used. Since I've done air filter, plugs, leads Im getting closer to 340, but the box underneath the bonnet for the gas sits on "rich" under idle and acceleration, so i'm hoping to pull 350km + from it after a gas tune.

Damn thats f all.

The vu 3.8 ute I was using a little while ago at work was getting about $1 per 10k on propane(uses more than lpg) and that was constantly carrying atleast 300kg on weight in the tray.

I did do 300 of 500k freeway driving though.

EDIT: I think I was actually getting 500k for $35-40ish.

It was a work car so I din't pay tooooo much attention
