I wouldn't rely on the trip computer to tell you l/100km.

I get a min 9l/100kms on highway and a max 13l/100kms, average being around the 12 mark.
But I only use bp or shell premium 98.

Go to a servo, fill it, drive it till you think it's nearly empty and refill. At the same pump if possible. The take the litres used, divide by kms travelled, then multiply by 100 and that'll give you you l/100km figure accurately. Then compare that to your trip computer.
If it's a sedan it should have a 62l tank, going by your 15l/100kms that should get you 400kms with 2 litres left.

If you really want to get technical, you could even work out how much you use per 1km!

Even with the blower if I stay off boost (as if), I'll go 400kms city and about 550kms on the highway. Id say something's up with 330kms from 60 litres.

Mine was about the same pre blower.

Well, work it out, at worst, 13l/100kms, should get 480kms to a tank.
At best, around 600 to a tank, which is why I said to check your consumption manually instead of going by the trip computer, because your usage is on the high side

as above,i always fill the tank in the morning and fill till the 2nd click.

grab my km's then divide by litres used,that gives me a number which I then divide that by 100 and get mt litres per hundred,i have a basically stock ls1 and get a lot more than 330

I entered into powercruise #43, I filled up the tank with premium before i left, drove a total of 550ks (on track and highway, i did the cruise events x6 (20 mins each of driving at max speed), the drifting x 2 days (4 laps per day), and the burnout pan comp x 2 (3 minutes on or near limiter)) and used 40L of fuel (maybe less as there was some left in the second jerry can when it started coming out the filler)

Normally to a tank ill get any where between 600-700 ks per tank.
