    Default Range - Strange!!

    Guys,

    Filled up with diesel from my dads work on Thursday night.

    When driving home, the range settled on 480 miles.

    When driving on Friday, the range went up to 540 miles.

    Today, when driving home from work, its settled on 610 miles and hasnt budged in 30miles.

    Since filling up ive covered around 70 miles and it says ive got 610 miles to go.

    Admittadly ive been staying cool with it and not going above 75.

    Does this sound right?

    Please let me know

    Cheers

    My petrol turbo does the same (but not with such high figures! ) It goes up steadily if I drive sensibly after filling up!

    The range is calculated from your past 30(odd) miles of driving. So if you've been driving 'sensibly' since you filled up - it's going to go up.

    If you're asking if the actual figure looks right - I'll leave that for a fellow oil burner to answer for you!

    Sounds about right to me matey - adjusts itsself according to how you've been driving. Therefore, you'll show a nice healthy range from driving sensibly, but it'll drop if you put your foot down. The range you're getting there sounds great!

    Sounds as if it is working correctly. I put £20 from near empty today and the range showed 133 miles! I had been giving it the (VERY) heavy boot treatment on Thursday when it was last driven. It has now settled after a "gentle" drive to over 200 miles.
