Range (petrol)

Something I find funny here is that cars have hardly any range.

Our Mazda MPV, for example, takes about $50 to fill up. And it'll do about 300 miles before it needs filled again. I don't know about you, but that seems crap to me.

I mean, it's totally logical: cars here are just less efficient than at home, but in general they have the same size petrol tanks.

My car at home - a petrol Stilo - did something like over 500 miles between fills. Our Alhambra the same, maybe over 600 sometimes.

Really efficient cars - like the Prius - get tiny fuel tanks.

It's probably a feature...
