Compute miles every gallon when you to fill up, no miles per tank. Gas guages vary wildly across cars, and also most aren\"t extremely accurate to start with. If you space driving the auto until the guage is sitting on \"E\" then you could really well have half a gallon left or 4 gallons left.Having said that, your mileage will certainly vary relying on your environment, the roadways you travel, and how girlfriend drive. Most people doing city driving here report high teens in the city up to high twenties and above for highway. Many tend to mean 20-25mpg. I would certainly recommend looking this forum since there have actually been about 18,000 threads around fuel mileage.

i have actually a gen 1 wagon and i have a 16 gallon tank and only get around \"what the onboard computer says\" about 13-14 mile a gallon. Because im obtaining ready to relocate ima say quickly i might get about 10 mile a gallon on my trip :noes: soundslike fun!! :banghead:
I think the Gen 2 SLO\"s have actually 16 gallon tanks, if the GEN 2 SHO\"s have actually an 18.4 gallon extended selection tank. The many I\"ve gained with the SHO is 195 per fifty percent tank, 21 mpg, and also that\"s a mix of city/highway driving. I\"d definately have to agree with, sfontain. Ours gas gauges room horribly inaccurate. If ns go WOT in second gear, and also come come a stop, the fuel gauge take away a dive down to the next bar i beg your pardon is around 1.8 gallons. Then gradually work its means back up. The fuel light come on favor 10 gallons prematurely. I\"ve done 4 days worth of driving v that damn light on.
My guage appears to be relatively accurate... As soon as I to be closer come a 1/4 it it s okay a small pessimestic. I fill up at 1/4 on all my cars, ns usually obtain 275-300 miles by the moment I hit 1/4 tank left. Ns avg around 22.5 mpg (thats stop and also go highway :lol: ). Much longer trips have actually yeilded me 25-26 mpg, however I have a hefty foot
I get around 17mpg in the summer (lots that A/C), and about 18.5 in the winter (heater collection to floor mostly). So this time the year the light comes on at approximately 210-220 miles. Around 12 gallons to fill. In the summer the light come on around 180-190.In the nearly 7 year I\"ve owned it, I\"ve never ever gone more than 240 miles between fills. I\"m not a gambler, and it\"s most likely not an excellent for the pump.
Dec 8 2005, 08:22 to be My guage appears to be reasonably accurate... When I am closer come a 1/4 it it s okay a small pessimestic. I fill up in ~ 1/4 on every my cars, ns usually acquire 275-300 miles by the time I fight 1/4 tank left. I avg about 22.5 mpg (thats stop and go highway :lol: ).

my \"02 was accurate until 6 months ago, weird enough. Currently it reads approximately 1/8 tank low. :blink:

I\"ve been actual lucky. I obtained 25 MPG critical time i filled up. Mostly highway though (about 190 mile highway and 30 miles city). It\"s been over 20 MPG because that the last couple of months. Ns usually acquire 17-18 MPG in the summer pure city and also 16 MPG winter pure city. Not bad for teh Essex, eh?

Ha ha, that looks choose I am the only one who waits it spins the last minute to fill up. I typically get about 260 every tank, but I\"ve propelled it as high as prefer 280 or 290 once or twice. And also I have a 92 L, getting around 20-22 mpg.

Dont trust digital gauges. Often they are inaccurate. The ideal thing to carry out is usage the odometer and calculate that the olde fashioned way.-DC
