How far can you go?
« on: January 11, 2016, 09:22:54 PM »
From new, A full tank costs me around 35 and that got me around 150 miles :p Wasn't a good start.

Pretty sure it said 150 before I filled up or at least it was in the 100ths

It depends how and where you drive really.  In town and on the Cotswold country lanes I get 150-200 miles depending how heavy my foot is.  On the motorway I can get 350 miles or so.

Are you going by what the miles to empty says when you filled, or miles you have actually driven?

Never bother or check. With the APE Esseesse I was always trying to get the best mpg but with the 595, I really don't give a damn so shows you just how much fun these little cars are! :)

Same thoughts as Brian, but most of my mileage is done around central London, so I get roughly the same as Oliver.

I've done it again.. this time I'm sure it said 180 miles done since my full tank but I did fill up on the last big bar instead of filling at the 2 small red bars. Even so, I probably get 200 miles from it.

I have been quite hard on my foot though. Just cant get enough of those downshifts and full throttle!

Type of journey makes a HUGE difference to mine - 2015 standard, monza and blue spark on C

Foot down little runs and I get about 19MPG
Gentle drive, sport off (only tried in once) little runs about 28
Foot down decent run 35
Foot down sport off decent run about 42

Okay, I think I know where i'm going wrong. on the new TFT display, you get 1 bar which is split in 2. When those 2 bars are red, does that mean the fuel light is on and needs filling? I was filling as soon a I lost the big bar.

Depending on type of useage, I reckon anywhere between 270 to 320 miles to a tankful is about right. A decent length of trip does make a big difference as does how much you run the air conditioning! If you are only getting 150 miles would think there must be something not quite right.

I just dropped below 30mpg! Bummer, I have to blame short journeys and cold weather.

I do about 45 miles a day for work and roughly get about 200 out of it sitting at 70 in my 595. Maybe that's my problem? I have to work hard to average a 42mpg run. Maybe it's the weather...

It's normal now guy. I'm averaging 34mpg according to fuelly and I get around 240miles on a tank (till the system says 'low fuel')

I think I was accelerating hard every moment i got so thats probably why I got 180 miles from a full tank lol
