    Default fuel economy again,and how far can you go after computer says 0 miles

    well i have done 555 miles on 78.63 litres of fuel most urban travel but with some 5 mile long motorway driving,to save you working it out that is 17.32 gallons of diesel so working out to 32.04mpg!!! im considering getting a 3.0 diesel as it will be cheaper to run

    as to the range i managed 8 miles after the computer said 0 miles and i had 2 litres od fuel left in the tank,i filled up 58.61 litres or 12.91 gallons of fuel

    Once mine hits about 6 miles left, it starts to flash, and thats when you really kack yourself!

    Still 600miles out of a tank is nothing to complain about :-)

    There is a post on here somewhere that a dealer told someone to fill up as soon as the gauge hits the reserve area as the veccy doesnt have a particularly large reserve.
