I gotta 33 gallon tank, Which is 124 liters. 300-350km to a tank.

We had a 460 in our bronko on propane, and it was a very strong, healthy 460. We did good to get 200k out of 90l. But it would outrunn almost everything light to light.

my friend had a 87 460, said it made no difference whether you babied it or not. it would get around the same mileage, but then again it had a piece of shit double pumper holley carb on it. the truck was on 44's so that probably made a difference
