Thinking a lot about fuel these days.
Mileage for a Nissan Patrol (diesel fuel) averaged about 21 - 23 mpg back in 2003. A full tank held 125 liters of fuel (about 33 gallons). Under good conditions, it's reasonable to expect a full tank of gas should last about 759 miles. And logic says anyone setting out on a journey from Tikrit to Kirkuk would want to start with a full tank.
So, how much was left in the tank when the vehicle was found and what does that say about where the Nissan Patrol last fueled up?
