    1) How much distance can your car travel on highway on a full tank of fuel?

    'How much distance?' is not natural. Say 'How far?' or 'How many miles/kilometres?'

    'How far can your car go on a full tank?'

    'How many off-road miles can your car go with a full tank?'

    'How many kilometres can your car go on unpaved roads with a full tank?'

    In the US, non-highway does not mean non-paved. I take back roads to work. I'm on a highway for only about 2 miles of the trip. All of them are paved, though.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Thanks for replying.

    How about the if I rephrase it like this.

    How far can your car go on full tank for city drive versus highway drive?

    How far can your go on city roads rather than on the freeway/motorway?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
