#2 of 437 12.1 Liters/100 Kilometers at First Fill-Up

No surprise here. There's lots of stops along my 5.5km 10-minute long route to the office and back and a big hill to boot. Even if I normally drive 50-60km/hr the stops could kill any car's fuel efficiency here in North Vancouver.

I got 29mpg on my first tank... will update as I continue to drive the heck out of this car.
#4 of 437 27 MPG

I have put gas in two times so far and have gotten over 27 MPG both times.
I drive alot of back roads and small town so don't have a lot of stop signs but also don't do much highway driving. Plus i have used the AC all the time since our temps have been in the mid 80's to the low 90's.

Jut had my low gas light come on for the first time. 350 miles on the tank of gas.
Got 27.6 MPG this tank. 1010 Miles on it since 7 July... Just to much fun to drive.

How much did you put in the tank after the light came on, if you can remember? I only got 12 gallons in it at that point. I like to wait until the light comes on, I'm trying to figure out what my fudge factor is.

I got 300 miles on my first tank and managed to squeeze 15.02 gallons in. I have to note, though, that I had 4 other adults with me most of the time and the temp here in Southern California meant I had the air blasting all the time. The light went on when I was at around 270 miles and the needle ended up pointing at the fuel pump icon to the left of empty by the time I stopped.

The light came on again, and I put 12.772 gallons in, getting 22.6 mpg. It was mostly city driving.
