if u want a performance car, then you shouldnt be worrying about fuel economy. i stopped worrying about gas prices a long time ago. nothing u can do about it man.
for the sti u should expect 300kms for a full tank. if you're lucky.

Worst: 14 L / 100 km
Best: 9.5 L / 100 km
Avg: 11.4 L / 100 km

In other words 400-450 km / tank on Chevron 92

Definitely not a Civic or Echo, but well worth the extra money. And yes fuel economy does matter.

I used to get 450/tank of 94 Chevron, but since late last year, I've only been able to get 300-350km.

Traffic is getting worse every day.

One thing that might make this more accurate - what is everyone's definition of a tank? (ie. how many L's do you actually "fill" at the pump each time)

I get 330~340kms per fillup, but my "fillup" usually only amounts to about about 40 L of 94 Chevron Octane. In other words, I don't drive until my gas gauge gets into the Kramer-just-for-kicks range (excuse the Seinfield reference)

Other thing is, I'm sure our definition of "city" driving varies by quite a lot. My "city" driving consists of many short distances, and lots of long, steep hilly stretches around coquitlam, and SFU - all of which negates fuel economy I'm sure.

Well really, if you go up a hill, you've gotta drive down it at some point and the coasting will counter the climbing a fair bit..

I put in $45 of gold and get 400-450 km on that ?

When I say "tank", I mean a tank. What I do is calculate fuel economy based on number of litres put in and kilometres driven, then calculate what I would have gotten had I drained the tank all the way (i.e. multiply fuel economy by actual tank size). So it doesn't really apply to the real world, but it does give me a way of comparing that is objective.

I believe what -Spy- was asking for in the initial post was (1) L/100km ... I'd also consider (2) octane grade and (3) type of driving as factors. A 'tank' really is too subjective.

So to amend my first post:

2002 WRX
1) 13.42L/100km
2) 94 octane at Chevron
3) 75% city (under 60km), 25% highway (over 60km/h)

Go get an Echo, You'll be happier !!

I have about 350/ tank when most of my driving is in the middle of the night, 2 a.m. No traffic and I shift at 3000 rpm.
