400.2 miles from tank on 172 mk2



  e60 M5 -172- dciheid

Managed it yesterday when going from perth - elgin - fraserbro - glasgow The light is one, but the computer reads 42.4mpg!!

Busted my old record of 377.4!!

Anyone better that?

I've been getting well below 45 recently. Way over accelerating. Good going mate!

Thats good, my best is just over 300, but I do have open induction kit which encourages the car to drink more fuel

I managed 392 miles a while back and that was just from regular driving day to day and i think i was probably down to the last litre of fuel when i filled it back up!

what were u doin ? 25 u slow coach :p


not at all, there was plenty of 5k kick action. Long sections were speed trapped up so it was cruise control and snooze button required :sleepy:

even when i go calmly i never get more than bout 300 miles to a tank.... maybe i need to run it right into the red!
 
  '52 clio 1.2 16V
i havent got the mpg computer on mine so i've been trying to work it out manually.usually manage 250-350 though before i have to fill up. only thing is i havent yet managed to risk running out completely so always have some left in the tank. managed to fill to the brim with 43l' today (most ever).

anyone have a rough estimate of how many miles a mk2 1.2 16v's got left once the red lights come on?

Just done Scottish Border back to Notts and a week of driving to/from work.

£45 of fuel to full @ 95.9p/litre [Shell V-Power 99 RON]
46.9 litres [10.28 gallons]
460.5 miles

44.8 mpg


Yeah I know.....crazy.

Lovely fresh Shell Ultra 5W-40 Synthetic Oil, Renault oil filter and a new ITG PANEL FILTER.

Best I've had - no pussy driving either. Just obeying the limits [or thereabouts!]

Had to be a good lad as the missus and little one were on board most time.

Nice one Alan,:eek:

Nah, just the route to work is limited to 50mph and crawling with cops/cameras.

Hence, you can't fail to get good mpg!!! unless i sit in second....

Gonna whack the ass off it tomorrow as my stainless cat back + sports cat is fitted:cool:

Light comes on when the sensor thinks theres 5 liters in the tank.

think you get around 50 miles left, my 1.2 has dun about 380 max to the tank but i got scared when the 'miles left' thing went to 0 from about 25:approve:

my light comes on at 62/63 miles normally, then screen goes blank at about 60, but ive had a good 45-50miles out of it twice, that was on motorway runs, normally fill up with 100 to go, not good for the fuel filters to let all the crap be pulled through the engine!

my car normally gets about 40ish mpg, which i think is pretty crap for a 1.2, but its only money...enjoy every minute of it, so wouldnt care if it did 20mpg!!!
