...when the range indicator hits zero, there is actually still 2-3 gallons in reserve
Recently had a work related road trip...Trip computer showed an impressive 38.4MPG. Receipt math came back with 36.9MPG. So the DIS is optimistic...
Do a manual mpg calculation. The car is slightly off, at times.Hey! I just bought a 16 GT with 47,000 miles last month. Since then, I feel I have been babying it, and I have averaged about 29.7. While WAY better than my previous car, I was hoping for a little better. The car is in great shape, and still smells new inside. After the initial 3hr interstate ride home, I have had a mix of city/hwy driving, and my commute to work is about 12 miles of two lane stop and go 60mph stuff.
I have been reading here that there isn't too much to improve MPG. Would a fuel system cleaner be a good idea(or even hurt)? I also read that no air filter from the aftermarket division is worth the $$.
good to know that there is a good solid 20mi + on the tank after it says 0! I had my last car(2003 Intrepid) for 12 years, and I knew I had lots of time after it said 0, but I wasn't sure on this one yet.Intrigued by the reserve in the tank, omw home from work today, (65 miles highway commute) my range showed 37 miles, so I rode it out. When it hit "0", I reset the trip and gas milage.
That was the longest 20 miles I've ever drove. I would have felt comfortable going 30+ if I had a gas can in the trunk.
It took 14.8 gal to fill up.
