    Sounds about like mine.. 12 in just before the light comes on. 22 mpg highway.
    There's no reason to use 93 unless you have a chip. From the factory was set up for 87.

    The tank holds closer to 13, but running out is a bummer. :) The Euro tank is bigger, and at that Alpina and such made aux tanks to increase range, so we're not alone in noticing.

    You can press the 1 and 1000 buttons on the OBC at the same time and it will show remaining fuel in liters.. full is 49.5.

    Feels like a gas leak somewhere:

    I am only able to fill just about 11 gallons of gasoline MAX in my tank. Use Chevron-93 exclusively all the time and get about 220 miles out of the tank, even though the OBC tells me the average mileage is 11.2mpg (when the bulb is bright enough for me to see it at all).

    The fuel filter is about 9 months old (3.5K mileage-wise), the fuel pressure regulator, the ICV and the throttle pressure switch are even newer.

    Thinking about another fuel filter replacement, but the fuel tank should be bigger than that or am I day-dreaming?

    TIA !!!
