    Yep as said above, it has worked on the information given for your "latest" figures.. If you had just got off a long drive on the motorway and filled up the range would have been a lot higher.

    As above, the range estimate is based on the driving style of your last 30 miles - so if that was a lot of urban driving or driving 'enthusiastically' then that would explain.

    I for one don't believe any mpg figures the BC throws out. I always brim the tank, re-set the odometer, do say 300 miles, brim it again and work out the mpg with a calculator. Yes, it's usually less than the BC says but a truer reading IMO.

    I do as gtr1000 does too, and find that the true figure is less but not too far out.

    I must be lucky then - the trip computer in my Signum has been accurate to within 0.5mpg every tankful since I've had it. Very suprised - pleasantly so - because the BC in my old Vec was nowhere near!

    I always get too optimistic just after filling up, last time I filled up the BC showed 508 miles but soon adjusted itself to about 450 and rapidly fell to about 390 miles by the time I got home, I usually get about 345 miles to 365 miles per tank full.
