I was having a look at my vehicle on parkers and it states i should be getting 508 miles per tank.

Im lucky if i get 300 per tank. Does anyone know how accurate this is? what is everyone else getting?

What can be done to increase miles per tank?

Hi,

It's not at all accurate; it probably takes in to account the reserve and will be calculating the range based on the official MPG figures which is probably 47ish mpg and I doubt you'll get anywhere near that unless you are on a long run.

 

300 miles is low though! I've been getting about 400 miles from a tank in my Mk3

From doing a bit of maths it sounds like you're doing approximately 31mpg, which around town is as I'd expect.

I'm currently getting about 430 in my 1.6 mk1.5.

I do about 300 miles a week commuting to work, which is about 2/3rds motorway and 1/3rd driving in London.

Think the engine is properly bedded in now, after 140,000 miles (50k were mine) :)

Hmm I may have to redo my math then cos 650 seems optimistic compared to others. 

Getting a solid 55mpg with very mixed driving, no motorway, according to the dash.
