According to the fuel range guide in the cab a Vlocity should get around 2000 kilometres out of a full tank, which off the top of my head is 2100 litres.

V/Line are advertising for trainee driver positions again. These 'off the street' intakes don't happen very often so if you were ever wanting to give it a go now is your chance!
