I think that sounds possible- see attached images of the odometer reading against a depleting tank of fuel from the year before last, on a Major drive from Edinburgh to the Bouremouth and back up to Stoke, via a refuel in Oxford.
I'm driving the 1.8 CF2
I was quite pleased to have pulled out, over 400 before the fuel light came on
The readings are from a completely full tank, when the odometer was zeroed. The gauge / sensor is quite logarithmic, with '300 miles' from the top half of the gauge alone.
That's really good Dante, something in my old engine could have been off not sure what, but I rarely got over 320 on a tank, and to be honest the last few years I haven't kept much of an eye on it as the bulb has gone on my mileage reading, despite replacing it, it still doesn't light up but if I shine a torch in it I can see the readings
