The fuel consumption sounds about right for a turbo, perhaps a little high. Hwy consumption depends on how you drive. If you cruise at 100 kph, you should get around 8 L/ 100km. Round town, about 10 L / 100km.

You have a dead battery.
The procedure to fix it is as follows:
1) Charge battery.
2) check alternator belt tension. If loose, tighten or replace.
3) If still no start, replace battery.

I would start simple and check the fuses and relays, also check the headlight switch to make sure your getting power out of it.

The pic attached shows instructions for the headlight and signal.
for just the signal light start by removing the phillips screw (A) from the tab above the headlight. Without breaking that tab, carefully pry the unit out from the corner start at the fender edge use something thin and plastic like a disposable knife with the teeth smoothed off.. once its out twist then pull out the bulb socket. They usually have markings to show the direction to twist. The bulbs are mostly the glass press in type which click when installed fully.

It's likely the coil. Subaru issued a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) on this issue. This is not a recall but you may want to show this to your Subaru mechanic or call Subaru after your repair to try to at least defray some or all of the cost for the repair. The link is below:

Nicklaus, shifter lock solenoid, maybe the brake light fuse, Check fuse 16 in the fuse block down in the left foot well. Center fuse in bottom row. If fuse is blown could be bad break light switch, damaged wires,corroded bulb sockets,etc. Have checked out by a good technician.

its common when using a running engine to jump start a car that the car being jumped recieves a power spike in the process.start by checking all the fuses mainly the big ones eg 50 60 80 amp and the fusable links in line of high amp positive supplies.if that checks out get the ecu tested

Hi,it sounds like you have damaged your own battery . I would get a auto electrician to pinpoint the failure or someone who can check your battery to see if its holding a charge and if its ok you need to move on to say the alternator.
