Default New here looking to get a 2015 K900, but have questions

Hello guys I'm new to the whole forum thing, but I'll get used to it from hanging around.

I'm looking to close the deal on a used 2015 K900 (VIP V8 white with all the options) $25,500 with 35,000 miles. I'm curious though on the gas mileage.

What kind of MPG are you guys getting? Also is this with premium fuel or unleaded? And what's the best range you've gotten out of a full tank?

Thanks, see you guys around!

In the city about 16mpg which was most of my driving. On the highway
I got about 26-27mpg depending on how many people were with me.
I'd get close to 450miles on a tank, but remember the low fuel light comes
on at about 17 gallons for mine

I drive a 2015 K900 with the V8. Like Gene, I get about 16 mpg in the horrible traffic in the city. I get around 25 mpg on the highway which is less than gene, but I tend to drive 70-80 mph, and we have a lot of elevation changes in my area. I find I get better fuel economy by about 1.5 mpg with non-ethanol gas, but I have not found much difference in fuel economy between 87 and 92 octane.

I made 6 trips from Arizona to North Carolina in one year.
That is mostly flat travel after Flagstaff. hills sure make a difference.
Tried 92 or 91 octane on several trips and 87 on others. Did not
see a difference in mpg.
My driving on the highway has been about 70-80mph.
The 5.0 is a Hyundai engine and Hyundai says it is tuned to
run on 87 octane gas, But for maximum performance use
premium gas.
