I just got something like 530 without the light coming on. 89 octane in a stock EK. I broke 600 a few times in my old EK, but that was pushing it.

837K out of a tank is decent emough mileage I would think.
Only 500K out of my hatch - mostly highway and driving like grandma.

Thats insane. I get 550 on 40L on average, with 70% Highway and 30% city, I dont shift higher than 3500rpm.

I need a tune up.

My car is an automatic, with 141,000km's on it. I drove to Chicago (an 800km drive), all highway km's. My speed was anywhere from 120-150km/hr all the way down. And yes, the 7th gens have a 50L tank.

I could probably get more if I fill the tank until its nearly overflowing, but I won't know until I take another long road trip.
