2006 WRX STI mileage advise.........

Well I test drove an '06 WRX STI on Saturday and LOVED it. But I need some realistic advise on what 16000 miles per year would do to it. I'm up to speed with the cost of servicing, tires, brakes and clutches etc but how many miles can you get out of a full tank with just motorway driving? If you really take it easy (which will be hard!) can you get a decent amount out of a tank?

Helpful advise is appreciated!

I've got that covered, Subaru dealer, low mileage, long warranty etc. The only thing holding me back is the cost of bloody petrol and the mileage I'd potentially do, and I know the petrol's just going to get more expensive! Or I take the option of leaving work and getting another closer to home for fuel reasons! lol
