just a quick fuel eco question... - scfc_151
my 306 1.9 td gets on average 600 miles from a tank. I work this out to be 10 miles to a litre which is 45 mpg. I think this is average for the car so im pleased as its over 10 years old.

My question is...how are some people selling cars on ebay etc sayin 'i get 520 miles from a tank = 50+ mpg'?

How are people working out mpg? I thought it was 4.5 litres to a gallon.

Just wondered...

You are correct my my reckoning, assuming you have measured the miles per litre correctly.

spose it all depends on the size of the tank :)

Also I'd have thought that you'd be cutting it very fine to get 60l in your tank when you fill up.

Mine was running on vapours as far as I could tell when I put 55l in it last week; however I haven't filled it up again yet so I don't know how many miles I acutally get to a tank.

How're you getting 60 litres into a tank? An average fill for me, after I've been driving with the light on for 40 miles, I can usually only get 48 litres into a 54 litre tank, and that's by filling it to motorbike-death level.

>:-(

All for the sake of 20 more miles before you have to fill up again.
