My diesel Superb could show a similar range on filling up, particularly if it had been an economic journey before fuelling it. We would joke “ next stop Montignac “

Update.
Local Esso garage has maintained their usual twice weekly deliveries. Still limited to £30 a visit. No shortages.
Asda five miles away , no queues no limit on spend.
Tesco Cirencester no problems. All the Chavs have filled up, enough to see them through to Christmas🥵
Until the next idiot who sets hares racing🤬🤬

Thought it would raise a comment . Our Octavia mpg varies between journeys under taking. for instance our run from Hastings to Dartford crossing would be about 70mpg at steady 60mph. About town 30 to 37mpg . Towing 35mpg

Hutch.....
Do you find your Santa fe doesn't run as smooth as it should on (what I would call),normal diesel?
I think mine would benefit from using the "super" from time to time.
I also notice the fuel consumption can drop sometimes(probably trying to do a re-gen from the mainly short journeys I do).

We have the CAMC fuel discount card and get .04p off normal diesel and .06p off the super, but current price of diesel is £1.46 and normally the super is £0.20p more per litre.

No shortages or restrictions in Wiltshire. The panic is long over

I normally use BP or other branded fuels, but have found that it does run slightly rougher on Supermarket fuels.
