    You've not put enough fuel in for the system to register properly.

    normally when i fill up and start the car,the range goes to about 370 miles,then on the 8 mile journey home just over 400 miles,but after 30 miles of driving it's only now on 330 miles and mpg is well down....

    Reset the Range counter, as people have been saying.

    Go into the BC menu and select range (so it's the displayed value when not in the menu). Then go to Settings and do 'Reset Present'. When you do a 'Reset All' it doesn't reset the Range, so you have to select it specifically and tell it to reset. Ideally fill the tank to the top, then start the engine and reset Range and all the other counters, then drive like you would normally for 30 minutes in order for the averages to start to settle down.

    Range uses a combination of the fuel tank level and average consumption to work out the estimated distance remaining. If either of these aren't accurate (ie you've not put much fuel in or you've been driving in a non-typical way) then it won't be accurate either. The longer time period it takes an average over for consumption, the more accurate the range estimate will be. But it's only really any use if you're driving long distances at relatively constant speeds so the average fuel consumption is fairly accurate.
