The fuel tank is 90L. You can do the math yourself.
It would be easily over $130+ a tank to fill up.

As for how much mileage you can get out of it...why not join some FX35/45 forums?

i just got a fx35, so far it's not that bad. It's the same engine as a 350 or g35. You don't have to get a fx45. For city driving V6 is good enough for me

if you can afford a fx45/x5 but have to worry about gas price.. you are stretching your budget too far. get a cheaper car so you have extra money leftover for gas.

iirc my g35's tank is 75 L

50-60 isn't a lot of gas as most cars should be able to do about 300-400 km on a tank, and 50-60 isn't possible for most suvs with a V6+
