60L tank Jono.
I've driven to rAdelaide from the Macedon Ranges (Hanging Rock area, as in the picnic at Hanging Rock hanging rock
), about 740 or so kms. I managed to fill my L's tank with 62 litres to the brim. Just before this the engine would surge as you gently pulled up to the lights! This was when my L ran the MPFI EA82, otherwise standard with two passengers and gear for a week's stay interstate. We then did the same on the way home including a few decent overtaking sessions along the way.
So I've come to the conclusion that the owner's manual is correct with the fuel tank being 60L capacity. The L wagon also has the biggest cargo area of any Subaru to date - largest floor space and height from floor to roof.
With the EJ22 conversion my tank size remained the same as did my fuel economy but power/performance was so much better. Then I lifted it, ran a rear bar with jerry can and spare tyre plus a roof rack. Now if I drive it nice fully loaded I can get 10L/100km but usually manage to pull 12L/100km. Worst was 15.8L/100km across the Nullarbor, loaded, roof rack full, headwind and travelling at 115kmph as that's where the vehicle felt happiest. I was ok paying for it at the bowser. Good trip that one too!
That aside, Jono, my L can drop the needle about two mm off the bottom of the "E" mark before I'm really in dire straighs. I don't do that often as I'm not into burning out efi pumps
