tank milage

I have a 2000 VW TDI Golf (4-door, diesel). The tahnk is rated for about 14.7gallons. and posted milage is 45-49mpg.

There is a small switch inside the nozzle where you fill the gas tank. if you push the switch it lets air out of the tank and you can fit more in. with this method I have been able to fit almost an additional 2 gallons. I average around 48-49mpg and my current record is around 730miles on a single tank. I will probably break that record on the way home tonight (that, or i'll be walking)

so how does your vehicle do? whats your MPG and total tank distance?

My tank holds 3 liters, I have a spare tank which takes me to 6 liters that got me about 30 miles and 4,000 feet of climbing. (were talking about mountain biking right???)
