35 litres = 7.69892051 Imperial gallons

To EEC Directive 80/1268
Urban Cycle : 37.7 mpg (7.5 L/100km)
Constant 56 mph : 60.1 mpg (4.7 L/100km)
Constant 75 mph : 44.8 mpg (6.3 L/100km)

To EEC Directive 93/116
Urban Cycle : 33.23 mpg (8.5 L/100km)
Out of Town : 57.65 mpg (4.9 L/100km)
Combined : 45.56 mpg (6.2 L/100km)

Touring Consumption : 45.6 mpg (6.19 L/100km) Source : Top Gear Magazine

So using 45mpg as the fuel consumption.. 346miles from a full tank.

I never saw more than 300 with my old 1108 engine, was more around 200-250 most of the time.

Can anyone actually work out how far you get from a tank with Litres per 100km?

It's such a complicated way of working out fuel comsumption you end up having to convert into MPG before you can understand what its on about.

km/l is easily calculated if you know how many km you've covered for a given amount of fuel. As km is used on the continent, they use km/l.
l/100km should be easily calculated from the km/l value :) Don't think you necessarily need to worry about MPG to get l/100km :D

I never got more than 45mpg out of mine, as opposed to the Panda 1.2 that gets 49-50 on average. Theres an interesting factor here to do with engine power. The greater the engine power the less you have to boot it up hills, and overall on a long journey I have found that a 1.2 gets closer to book expectations than a 1.1 and a 1.6 even more so, then as the power makes less difference the 1.8 and the 2.0 I've owned were similarly dissapointing. 1.6 being the best, powering a saloon.

You might find a 1.2 sporting does better mpg, if they ever did them. I've lost track. But people normally fill up at the 290-310 mile mark with the Sei, if they don't the little yellow light comes on.....

On both the ones I've had the gauges have been about right, with very close to 1 gallon per mark. 1242 superchipped did about 44mpg, 50-52 at a steady 80mph.

Turbo is a bugger if you hoof it, though - been down to 26.

I know i dont have a cinq but count yourself's lucky!!!!
Coupe at best is 30mpg, with 28mpg the best i can muster when being semi good and 20mpg (which is 240 miles from £50) bein the worst.
