economy is dependant on so many things you may have n area with more hills so youll use more fuel you may use more electrics etc and then theres the price of the fuel how many litres does that 20 quid get you 1 gallon is equal to 4.55 litres so if i put 20 quid in at 1.06.9 a litre =18.7 litres divided by 4.55 is 4.1 gallons at 36mpg i should get 147.6miles total so depends on youre mpg even at 39mpg it would be 159.9 miles to get 200 miles youre mpg would need to be 49mpg and only the diesel will see those figures so youre fuel is right however if they had a fiver of fuel still in the tank and filled up they would have increased there miles at 39 mpg to 179.6 taking the reserve tank into account


round by me at the local bp its around the 1 2p mark going of what you say the fuel gage must be wrong because im not taking the mick out of you guys but it does say 190-200 miles it MUST have more petrol in the tank than what it is reading on the fuel gage to allow me to get this range if what your saying is correct. Most of my miles are commuter ones with only one hill to take into account rarley stopping for traffic lights etc and most of the time the car is in 5th gear crusing or 2nd under around 60-80% throttle (speed demon driver).
My mums r-reg mondeo had a sticking fuel gage doubt my car will also have this being an 04 plate focus *touch wood*

cheers mate was just going to go onto demon tweaks really appreciate that nice one


when you fit the cone its basically left loose with nowt to support it on my mates i got an l shaped bracket and fitted it onto the inner arch with 2 self tappers then you can nip a cable tie round the cone and through the bracket to keep it in place standard size is all you need

those are the correct numbers for working out mpg so i cant say mate only that based on the figures theres either more fuel in the tank or the computers a bit optimistic
