MG MGF Technical - how many miles on a tankfull?
|I have driven 435 miles so far on this tankload and there is still some left!!!|
admittedly it is nearly all Motorway miles
how much does anybody else get on a full tank ?
|about 400 TF160|
|MGF = 380-400|
ZS = 250-300 - eeek! :-o
|I'm licky if i'm getting 450 km ( yes, kilometers not miles) out of one tankload !!|
Don't do much highways but still, it seems i have a heavy right foot !!
I definitely need a K&N to reduce fuelconsumption !! :-)
|Licky => lucky !!|
need smaller fingers too !
|I get about 400/420 mostly on Mway in TF160|
|G A Glasgow|
|Christ I get about 350ish!|
|What car/engine do you have Bob???|
|G A Glasgow|
|>>What car/engine do you have Bob??? |
I think it might be the Lead Foot that is the problem eh Bob? ;-)
I get between 380-450 (only had 450 once though and I was a little concerned towards the end). 97 VVC with K&N & DAYTONA
|1.8Mpi with enclosed K&N, De Cat Pipe & Mike Satur Sprint Exhaust!|
Do have a tendency to put the foot down though ;-)
|OK I'm worried. I only manage about 250-300. Should I get something checked? or is it just my right foot?|
|Around town about 275-325|
Motorway runs 325-375
Ho hum !!
|Again, Richard whats your car/engine??? but even so this seems a little low, unless you are hammering it!!|
|G A Glasgow|
|1800, VVC, K&N, Phoenix, F,|
|Regularly get over 400 - I do a lot of motorway miles. Best I got was 480 when I was running it in - but it needed over 53 litres to fill it!|
|So 480 miles is the record?|
so I wasnt going mad, a tank usually lasts only about 350ish miles (but I have very heavy feet
and I love the noise the car makes full chat
its at 448 now but just gone into the red
|2873 miles. |
About eight tankfuls.
|Always fill up at 300. Often sooner.|
Have managed 350 a few times, but rare.
Aside: Only managed 119 miles on one tank in my Mini at the recent track day!!! Wow! That worked out at 8.7mpg I think. Don't you just love superchargers!! :o)
|Scrub my 250-300. Just found out that it is a 55 L tank. The most I've ever put in was about 45L, normally 40L. Feeling much happier now, :-)|
|55ltr tank, superb, that means I had another 5 in on the 450 run. wow, might have got near the 500 mark, never mind.|
|Only about 300miles and I regularly put in 50 litres!|
Mind you I do like to put my toe down to hear the K&N and all is central London driving.
1.8MPi with K&N
|i usually get 380 to 400. was worried last week cos fuel needle seemed to drop quick! got to safeways and put 50.5l in! very close!|
|old f vvc 400miles, tf 1.8i 380-400|
|Don't much care,methinks you're driving the wrong car!!!!!!!!!|
|Never more than 450 KILOMETERS (ususally in city and local roads, rarely highway). Far, far away from the best.|
Maybe my right foot is too much heavy and it press too much the pedal?
|When I had my F.|
VVC + K&N + Trevor Taylor exhaust + 8.5mm performance leads + KH spoiler + etc.
Maximum = 630km on motorway and rural driving
Minimum = 430km in city traffic.
My new Mitsubishi Airtrek Turbo-R
Maximum = 420km on motorway
Average = 360km
Minimum = don't even wanna think about it. (probably about 200-250km if I push it)
I miss my F's fuel economy the most!!!
|I've not put a drop in either of my cars for 3.5 months, but then they are 10k miles away. :-(|
|Crikey that's where one of the TT exhausts went!|
was it fitted with a cat bypass too?
TT exhaust is awesome .... thanks to Rob Bell, I got it in NZ. I had catbypass as well, SOUNDED awesome real loud tho... so I had to get the CAT on.
|Good to see that you're still around Hanah. :o) How's the studies going? Met Dennis on Saturday - he's over from New Zealand on a European tour with his family! :o)|
Yimmy and I must make it over there some time soon...
|Rob! Hello!! Long time no see.|
How are you? :-)
Is Dennis over there?? Man... I emailed him before, but he was in Malaysia... wicked.
Rob you should definately come over... it's a beautiful place... you can visit Auckland (me) / Wellington (Dennis) / and South Island...
I am on my holiday, going to hospitals next year... my clinical year begins! Finally..
Good to see you again Rob. (as in ... on the net)
|Hey Guys I get about 550 plus km both high way and city and I have a lead foot must be the sunshine here that improves fuel consumption|
|M L Dippenaar|
|ML - most of the post are talking MILES you are talking KMs - 550 KM = 330 Miles (approx).|
I get about 280 per tank in London but about 380 per tank out of town. My new aquired Peugeot 406 Diesel Estate gives 600 per tank:-) BUT it cost over 50 squids to fill it:-(
