I searched but didn't see anything. I have a 09 V Sedan. 25k miles. I've noticed that the first 1/4 tank is gone in one day after fill up but then it takes another 5-6 days for me to empty. Normal driving. Is that a common problem? Has anyone else experienced this? Is it any easy fix?

I have owned both a 2010 sedan V and now a 2011 sedan V. Both drop quickly (not quite down a full quarter) after fill-up and then burned normal until empty. I just assume it is the shape (narrow at top) of the tank. Can anyone confirm?

cant confirm shape....but same issue with coupe....Drive 18 miles home and it starts to come off full.....(probably between 1 and 1.5 gallons burned)

Can't confirm, no, but your logic is spot on. My 300 was the same way.
