Miles to empty challenge

What's your mpg? And actual range to zero?
Ach, I don’t want to skew someone’s perception of what this car can return as I’ve explained the type of commute my wife does numerous times.

But the facts of the matter are this - the most I’ve seen ‘to empty’ after filling up since I started recording the amounts is 310 miles and it averages 280 miles since August.

Lifetime mpg after 10500 miles is 24.5mpg. Like anyone else, I’ve achieved 36mpg on a 40 odd mile Airport motorway run but that’s not a true reflection of the day to day roads we need to negotiate.

I’m not being funny, but I’m also not spending this amount of money on a car to doddle about 95% of the time. It’s getting thoroughly enjoyed for another 3 years then move on;)

Sorry, meant to say, actual tank to tank is 200-230 miles.

After reading through this thread again from the beginning, I'm wondering if we have another 'Diesel-gate' with US cars getting lied to with over-inflated results. Software tricks in the background on the VNs? But why?

Sorry, just thoughts running through my head after seeing Winterkorn (former VW boss) getting officially charged with fraud yesterday.

Love a good conspiracy theory :eek:

US miles = UK miles. Could be a miscalculation by a software author :eek:
Ha! On the Honda cbr250 I noticed a constant % error in the l/100km reported fuel use. I collated data from a forum of reported versus actual pump usage (ain’t the interweb grand!) spanning a huge range of km and fuel use from dozens of users over multiple tanks. Sure enough: a constant slope of % error pretty much matched the imperial versus US gallon % difference....looks like a code monkey screwed up...
