I stuck £30 in the other night (would have filled up but pump kept cutting out)
Had about 50 mile range plus the £30, got back in and it said range 132 miles :eek:
Anyway about the pump cutting out, ive had this a few times with pumps which seem high flow, even when holding the trigger so softly. Anyone else suffered from this

it's cos of the car having 2 fuel tanks and a breather pipe. you need to let it settle for a couple of mins with the fuel cap off before you try filling it up. it's documented in the manual too.

If you are worried about fuel consumption, by a BRDM2 or even better a boat with a 5 litre v8 in it!

I get 10mpg on the BRDM and maybe as much as 2mpg on the boat...

It's just a matter of perspecitve!

Hey that brings back memories I drove a BMP2 out in Bosnia in 1996 what a fantastic piece of kit I bet that only does about 2-4 mpg!!
Challenger 2 does about 2 gallon to the mile tho! I am glad we are all paying our taxes to fill those up lol

Hi everyone,

Just been watching some you tube videos and spotted this one.

This guys fuel range on a full tank said he can do 266km!!! Thats about 165miles!! Is this normal? or is it because he must have been driving it pretty hard?

Here is the video - look around 3:04 for the view of the fuel range on the MFD

Think it's the way the range calculation is done. Obviously, it must use some average fuel economy figure to calculate range. This will be some historical average based on fuel economy data stored in the trip meter. Not sure what figure is used exactly (eg economy over last 10 miles, last 100, last 1,000, average as stored in the trip computer since it was last reset.....). Key point is that it will reflect recent driving style. I got into mine yesterday to drive to Silverstone (for the Race Academy daya - excellent day out!). Range said 140 miles so I though I might have to fill on the way, but it stayed at 140 miles for about the first 20-30 minutes and still said 70 miles when I got there (145 miles form home).

So, take no notice of these stats - it all depends how you decide to drive it.

Mine was averaging just under 15mpg for its first 2800 miles and I've just done 1700 miles to the south of france and back last weekend and I averaged 16.3mpg which I was impressed with as most of it was cruising between 90 and 120 mph with some nice N road blasts and a few VERY high speed runs thrown in for good measure (probably on autobahns)!

yes

it will say 30 miles left for 25 miles then go to zero and start flashing!

I did 20 miles while flashing....scary, in France on my first trip to Le Mans in it

I'm still getting 4.3 miles to litre whatever that means

In my Lands End to John O'Groats drive (details in members area and gallery) I'm averaging 20+. I think that counts as a reasonable distance with different terrains and road types to count as a worthwhile test :D

:D:DSadly I've calculated my fuel consumption at each fill up.:lamer:

Total Mls Gal MPG
0287 257 11.8 21.8
0431 144 09.1 15.9
0660 229 13.2 17.3
0839 179 11.3 15.8
0960 121 09.0 13.5
1161 201 15.6 12.9
1330 169 11.5 14.6
1586 256 13.2 19.4
1841 255 12.4 20.6
2083 242 12.8 18.9
2266 183 11.5 16.0
2477 211 11.6 18.2
2723 246 13.9 17.6
2897 174 11.4 15.2



So, best I got was just under 22mpg when I first picked up the car with sub 3500 revs. The low figures (12,13,14mpg) was again during the running in period when revs had to be kept high.

In summary around town I'm getting 16mpg, longer runs at 80-90 mph, 20-21 mpg. Average is 17mpg, or 18mpg if I exclude the running in period.

This is about the same as my M3 and a bit less than my EVO :D
