All very much on how heavy your right foot is.

I had 300 miles remaining, then booted it for a while - dropped to 190 miles remaining, even though I'd only covered 50 miles.

It soon recovered, but I don't drive mine lightly, so I get around 570 miles per tank.

It's getting better though. I've only done 3400 so maybe too early to say?

Right, since last fill up, (70L), 305.2 miles travelled, 425 left to go on the DIS = 728.2 miles. not bad eh!

How did you get 70 litres in - were you running on fumes?! EEK2.GIF

The most I have ever squeezed in was 65.82 and that was with DIS saying "5 miles left"!

Anyway, filled up once and went on a slow cruise up to Glasgow - managed to get miles done + miles left up to 850!

Any overtaking or r-a-bouts made it plummet!

I keep a record of all fuel used and the stats are:

1778.3 litres since 04/04/2003 (not counting the free tank)

Average cost of 77.7p per litre

16,021 miles covered = 40.9 mpg

I still have 500 mile left on the DIS so this should be more like 42.2mpg

If you include the free tank this drops to 39.5 and 40.7 respectively.

Yep, the dis seems to over read somewhat.

Brimming the car at each fill and zeroing odometer, the best mpg is 43 and worst 38mpg. The car is having new fuel filter fitted today as part of service - I am told economy may increase.

I too keep a record of mileage/litres etc.!

No, 62L in and the tank holds 70L. I had 8L left

However, doing my sums, 1 gallon os about 4.54L. So 70L = 15.42 gallons, so I get 725miles, which is 47mpg. How come the DIS reads 50-60 mpg?
