210 miles to the tank...you prolly fill up around 1/4 left so... 210 for 3/4 of the tank...16 gallon tank



makes sense







if you had a hole in your tank you would know...why would you think that

The gauge on the stock cluster is not that accurate. As an example, I've driven three different n/a S4's and all three have had different tendencies with the fuel level on the gauge. Personally, I prefer the quicker at first then slower near the bottom, it allows you to put off filling up longer



Find out you mpg and then we'll see if there's a problem.



Other ideas?

Leaking injectors, heavy foot, clogged cat, etc.
