The thread might be dominated by us proud TDCi owners ;) Just to see how far everyone go can on a single tank. It'll probably bomb as no one's as interested in mpg as I am :P

I'll throw down the gauntlet:

Total miles: 552.5
Miles remaining [computer]: 24
Miles remaining [actual]: 15 (computer was +39% out, on average it's out by -68%)
MPG [computer]: 63.2
MPG [actual]: 64.5 (computer -1.98% out, on average it's out by -3.25%)
Average speed: 40mph
Miles remaining after tank filled: 562

Oh dear. lol Can we see screenshots of these famous spreadsheets? ;)

I'm all for good "gas mileage" (as I know you hate to call it), but I'm not even going to work out my petrol automatic's poor mpg figures, not to be wiped the floor with from these tdci numbers anyway.

The closest I've had to Nathan's is: (23rd Sept 2011)

Total miles: 527.5
Miles remaining [computer]: 29
Miles remaining [actual]: 40 (computer was +38% out, on average it's out by -63%)
MPG [computer]: 58.2
MPG [actual]: 64.5 (computer -10.85% out, on average it's out by -3.23%)
Average speed: 32mph

These were taken from my fuel consumption spreadsheet which I kindly stole from Nathan, hence the similarity in statistical output (Thanks Nathan)

I'll probably fill up on Tuesday so I will hopefully beat Nathan's best after that one!

How do you get that kind of miles?! I always get about the same out of a tank, i fill it with about 20 miles left, all the way to the top and never get more then 400, normally about 380!

Is mine broken?! Lol.

If I'm being brutally honest with you your right foot is broken :P You need to be tickling the pedal not stabbing it and holding it to the ground ;)

Well, seeing as you said EVERYONE...

Total miles: 1001.3
Miles remaining [computer]: 25 (I think, the fuel computer is a total waste of time...it goes down to zero then back up again, the fuel light is I believe linked to it but sometimes comes on at 60, sometimes at 40)
Miles remaining [actual]: Not sure
MPG [computer]: 78.3
MPG [actual]: 82.75 (55 litre tank which I make 12.1 UK gallons, so it's based on that)
Average speed: Not sure
Miles remaining after tank filled: 450 (it always says this if you put in more than half a tank :lol: it then gradually goes up over the first half of the tank)

Lately my MPG is in the toilet, I'm hitting very low 50's at best, usually mid 40's, think I hit just over 400 miles last tank -.-
