    Default A new record (For me anyway!)

    I filled the car up on Monday morning with the usual Shell V-Power Diesel and wanted to see how far I could actually go on one tank.

    Heres the results.

    Just before filling up, I took this picture of the trip screen.



    I then filled up and put in 53.88 litres of Shell V-Power diesel.

    Converted to Gallons this equates to 11.84 Gallons used (Trip stated 11.9G) Divide this by the mileage covered and it gave me a calculated 55.07mpg for the whole tank full.

    The other interesting thing about this test is the accuracy of the trip computer. It said I have used 11.9 Gallons, in litres, this is 54.02 litres.

    So taking into account that it is a 60 L tank (13.2 gallons), this left according to the trip computer 5.98 litres in the tank, and as I put in 53.88 litres it should actually have 6.12 litres left.

    This is an error of 0.14 of a litre.

    It for sure does more mpg with the BSR map when driving gently than the standard map.

    I also reckon my car weigh's a little more than the average 1.9 Signum Design as I have the VXR brakes, twin exhaust, towbar and 4 skins of leather, so very pleased with the result.

    Be interesting to try this with other brands of diesel inc supermarket fuel to see which gives the best result.

    That is pretty good going. Well done!
