Cars that go farthest on a tank of petrol and diesel
A welcome side effect of cars becoming greener and eking out ever-more miles per gallon is the simple ability to travel much further between refills.
Choose a car with a really large fuel tank and, while the up-front cost to fill it will be high, you'll make visits to the filling station a welcome rarity. Some cars can travel so far, the average driver may find they need fill-ups less than once a month, which might be just the thing with a fuel strike on the horizon.
Which cars can go the farthest for a tank of fuel, then? Read on to find our top 10 mile-munchers...

The published figures are over hyped & no where near what these cars do under ordinary
driving conditions. Manufacturers propaganda.
My Bentley does about 16 mpg so I might swap it for Mini,but am worried what the neighbours will think.
A 1950's Morris Minor 1000 would do well in excess of 50 mpg. If that is not enough for you, a Reliant Kitten would do well in excess of 60 mpg, and both were low-tech cars.
Even better was my 1961 BSA B40, 350cc. I travelled from Burnley to Perranporth and back for £2. That is not a mistake. In 1962 petrol was 5 bob a gallon and my trusty BSA did 800 miles on 8 gallons. I still own the bike and I am sure it would still do 100mpg.
If you are using the manufacturers figures then I do not believe a word of it. Time and time again it has been proven that in the real world these figures are unattainable.
Try getting your facts straight.
If you have tested it yourself then that is a different matter
THE CARS THAT GO FURTHEST ON A TANK OF FUEL
So they haven't got large fuel tanks then??????
Surely a more useful article would be on cars that go furthest on 20 litresof fuel (or whatever)
My 1999 2.5l petrol vectra does about 45 mpg when driven at 65-70 mph on a motorway.
Averages around 33 mpg combined and 24 mpg in urban areas. If you drive with a light right foot, you will be surprised how much fuel you can save.
Also, would I be wrong in saying that most fuel consumption tests are done on a rolling road, with no wind resistance, hills or corners, which all help to drain your tank during every day driving?
I've had the same broom for thirty years and have only had to replace the handle twice and the head three times.
If literacy is so important to you that you feel the need to comment on it while admitting you are no longer really qualified to do so without offending just about every reader then what are you doing reading and commenting here for in the first place! This is not the forum for judging literacy whether it be English or other. Maybe you would turn this free for all into a select place you have to qualify for before submitting. Grow up! Get a life! Who have you actually done something nice for recently or thought to help for no return and when was the last time you did? I'm betting you can't even remember, but you'll sit there nit picking!
On my typical journey to work, a 30 mile round trip, on mostly 60 mph limit roads with little traffic my BMW 330 D will give 620- 650 miles on a tankful of diesel.
On a recent trip from Tukey to the UK at an average speed over 2,600 miles of 65 mph in 2 1/2 days the fuel consumption was about 55 mpg. Not bad for a 7 year old car.
