    Question Trip Computer on an SRi

    Hi Guys,

    Just a quick one ... does anyone know how accurate the trip computer on the Vec SRi is?

    More specifically the "Range" function.

    Thanks,

    Only accurate as far as your previous 30 miles of driving, as that's what it's based on mate. Rely on the guage, and when it starts getting close to the red you should start to think about filling up... After you've filled her up to the brim fro the first time you'll get an idea how far from the bottom of the tank the last mark actually is, and you can judge it better from there...

    Tank is 60 litres...

    Mine never goes to 0, it goes to about 17/18 then --- then after about 2 more miles the fuel pump lights up ?

    lol !! 0's a bit low, I always fil up before it even hits red but once, Ive rolled into the station forcourt with 4 miles showing, so I guess its reasonably accurate. Still not worth the risk !! lol

    You cant always rely on the guage. I found this out when my 2.2 suddenly stopped with a 1/4 tank !!

    The trip computer on car is accurate but as close as it can be. The trip computer is run off the abs system and not the engine. It is only a guide.

    I don't use the RANGE, my display is set to average MPG
    I usually refill the fuel tank when the needle is down to the last eighth as that is about 7 litres / 30 to 50 miles
    However, the "RANGE 30 miles" display usually overrides if the needle gets this low
    I can then extend the range by trying to keep the speed between 40 and 60mph
    Quite often the RANGE then disappears
    However the fuel tank warning light then comes on, then I know I need to refill and usually by the time I do find a PFS the warning light has started to flash

    I have looked a few times at RANGE, but on refilling it can be anything from 250 to 500 miles

    On the 1.8 the RANGE is not likely to be as volatile
