  • Range On Full Tank?

    just wondering if people can post what they get out of a full tank of fuel, not what the car says on the trip comp but the actual amount of miles you get before u have to fill up again?

    o ye and what fuel you use?

    thanks

    My last 3 full tanks have gotten between 110 - 125 miles before the gauge reads empty and the computer shows zero miles left. Something aint right there.

              You must absolutely hammer it always mate!!!

              I have just under half a tank and my range says over 120 miles!!!
              Used to own: Arden Blue Astra VXR.

              Now own: Silver Corsa VXR.

                        I had a new engine fitted at the Vauxhall Technical Centre a bout 6 weeks ago and the fuel gauge has been screwed since then. Last two tankfulls I haven't been over 2k on the revs, so definately not hammered.
                        The car has been back to the dealer twice since the new engine, fuel tank and trip comp have been calibrated both times, but still no resolve.
                        I filled to the brim on Sunday morning, I've done ten miles since then and the tank is showing almost 3/4 full now.

                          The most that i have had from a tank from 360 miles, i average around 300 miles to a tank of 'normal' driving. If on a meet day would get through half a tank in 100 miles.

                            average between 200 & 250 per tank , i always fill up on v-power when readings show 60 miles left , i never let it go below that plus the last time i filled up it costs about £40

                              Best I ever see is 500km from a tank, which is about 310 miles.

                              Not too bad I dont think, something like 30mpg.
