Hi all, I did give this a search but couldn't find a thread,delete it by all means if its a duplicate.

Could you all tell me what your distance to empty is when you brim your tank ?

I have a 2007 1.8 tdci, it says 407 on fillup, however according to the fuel gauge I had covered 142 miles to a quarter of a tank, and the current distance to empty + the distance covered ended up totally up to 450 odd at that point of you get what I mean.

Would be glad to hear of your data, any engine would be interesting, but obviously the same as mine would be more useful.

Same engine, depending on the type of run I can get up to 500 miles for purely motorway runs to 370 for city roads in cold weather.
Currently at 420 range which is a jump in one week from 370 in same weather and same driving style (post terraclean service so still collating figures for a post update as to effectiveness of it).
A reading of 400ish is normal for temperatures in Spring to Autumn on a combined run.
Remember that the range is recalculated on a mile by mile basis depending on speed/revs/temperature/driving style.

If you get into the highest gear you can without dropping to stall point and accelerate and brake gently you can maximise fuel range but tbh there's not much excitement in that. ;)

Affiliate member if IAM (my posty must think im a right geek when their magazine comes through haha) and I study road craft and blackstones traffic religiously.. :) haha although the style of driving it suggests is far from Economical in roadcraft.

I did safe and fuel efficient driving in my HGV CPC course, but this is the first time I've actually bothered to put the techniques into practice since its the first car I want to look after and fuel is so expensive

My personal driving style is along the lines of enjoy the experience and hang the cost.

2009 1.6 tdci, when I fill up it usually says 595 miles to empty. Depending where I'm working in the week that figure changes from 550 to 650.

Most I ever had after a few economy runs was 400 miles on fill up. It's normally about 300-330 miles though which is what I get to a tank to the light.

 

Focus 2.5T mildly modified..

2005 1.6 Auto diesel CMAX - not sure about the service history so most of this is probably due to the fact it needs a damned good service, but I get about 350 - 380 miles to a full tank of fuel (average all winter) this tank though on the warmer weather, I am looking at around 420 and thats with a heavy right foot and a lot of motorway miles...

 

I dont drive economy style to be honest, so I dont think its too bad

2.0 tdci 2007 non dpf and I seem to be getting a good 440 miles from a tank, more than double what I had in my mondeo v6 :) that is mostly driving around town and the odd run. I do tend to have a bit of a heavy right foot sometimes too...... Love my diesel!
