ive driven Melb to Syd numerous time as i'm originally from melb...quite often visit my folks down there.

on my humble E36 318is, it takes just a little more than a tank.

with a 2.5 6cyl car like yours, i'd say about a tank and half - give or take.

From the guy who does the same trip every couple of months, it's 1.25-1.5 tanks, depending on which side of melbourne your going to. It's a good drive, enjoy!

Let say 100litres for one way, it cost $170. ( $340 return ) ( more chances get double demerit haha )

if i choose travel by plane cost $200 return/ppl ( $400 for 2ppl )

Looks like plane is the best options, but i do love driving and most of the time i do speeding 10kms/hour faster than the road sign.

When I went to Boeing in Germany I heard that it takes around $155,000.00 to fill a 747...
