Re: i got 200 miles in my gtv v6 on a full tank is that right
Just thought I would share this and hope that my sums were not wrong....
Went to Hemel from Tarleton yesterday, 402 mile round trip. Got to Hemel still had half a tank after brimming it, left hemel and the garage I usually go to (shell) was closed so carried on up the motorway. Found a shell garage and added 30.23 litres. Did not brim it as it was over a pound per liter but filled up to 30 litres for my bonus points :-) (V-Power by the way). Got home well more than half a tank left, so I did my sums:
If I use 30.23 litres for 236 miles to get to the service station it works out at 30.23 / 4.546 for gallons = 6.65. Therefore MPG was 236 / 6.65 = 35.5 MPG!!! From a 3.2 and not holding back on the journey. But lets be conservative on how much I had not brimmed the car on the refill (although the needle showed over full on the inside). Lets assume I used 35 litres of petrol or 7.7 Gallons, this still means I got 236 / 7.7 = 30.65MPG!
So thats not too shabby.
