Default RX-8 Range on a full tank

About to drive 150 miles in a mates RX-8 192.
Does anybody know how many miles it will do on a full tank on the motorway realistically?

RX8 230 will do 280 miles to 60 litres on a run with a steady right foot. My mate get between 200 and 250 out of a tank. The 190 bhp should be slightly better.

If you drive a 192 steadily you can get 300+ miles out of a full tank. But why would you drive it like that?!

I used to get about 240 ish to the tank if I were driving like miss daisey on my old 231

however in 6500 miles I had used 8L of oil

Mazda recomend checking the oil every 1000 mles but I used to at least check mine each time I filled her up. Saying that I once did in a tank in 100 miles

If you are driving the 190 just remember not to reverse up any hills or the clutch will only last about 5 mins...lol
