    Default Can anyone see if these are right?

    Morning all

    1.8 vvt

    I picked my new vec up on friday its all fine accept from the engine thermometer(from past threads) which i am calling the garage to get it fixed

    i have just checked on the trip computer and heres the following:

    filled the car up had 198 on the range on the (17th)

    i now have 172 on the range (today)

    avg speed 31

    trip consumption 1.5 mgal

    av consumption 39.8

    i have done approx 70 miles

    does these seem correct i do understand if i get ther thermostat fixed that should improve the mpg

    cheers all

    The trip computer is innacurate just ignore it, its there for a rough guide (sometimes very rough).

    Vehicle : Saab 9-3 Aero

    Trim : Aero

    Engine : 2.8 Turbo V6

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 62000

    Default

    Yep as said above its just a guide....I started a journey with full tank saying 289 mile range.....about 100 miles later it was showing 308 mile range. Also I never let my tank drop below 1/4 but the other week I did, the range said 0 miles for around 15 miles. When I filled up still around 8 litres in tank lol.

    After filling up you would have used some of the fuel and the computer uses the instant consumption over the last 5 miles to recalculate the range

    I can take my range down to 30 miles with 1/8th left in the tank
    The next day if I drive constantly at 50mph the range can then increase to 55 miles
    Equally, if I then fill the car it will read 450 miles
    However, as soon as I join the motorway it starts dropping and can read 220 miles

    I once did a 100 mile round trip and ended the journey with the range showing 40 miles more than when I started - just by driving more economically than the day before.

    Yes, we've noticed oddities like that. Range is never going to be 100% accurate as it's always calculating on what you've done, not what you're doing. Consumption to mileage sound OK.
