So, filled the car. Pumped 16.185 which is the most I've ever put into the car at one time. After I worked it out, I only ended up averaging 25.3 mpg this month. :/
I'm sure the "fuel remaining at 0" differs from car to car, and probably even from time to time in the same vehicle. My biggest fill-up was 16.5gals. I wasn't doing it as part of an experiment so I can't tell you at this time what the miles to empty reading was. But the trip odometer read 517mi... so 31.3mpg. Though the trip computer said 33.2... more than the usual trip computer error vs. pen 'n' paper method.So, filled the car. Pumped 16.185 which is the most I've ever put into the car at one time.
Crazy exact data is my hobby, LoL.Username;Hogan773 said:WHY! don't you have more interesting hobbies than verifying the exact capacity of your tank and possibly damaging components ?
Cool Username! We think alike and I'm also a pilot too. Might explain why we like to know exact fuel quantities and usage details.:thmsup:I have many hobbies: flying, rowing, cycling. I just want to know exactly how much gas is in the tank. next month I'll see how far past zero I can go.
Similar result. I just filled up today, and went approx 20miles past "0 to empty". 465miles, and with two clicks of the pump, got 17.45gals in. 26.72 MPG.I've drove 18 miles after 0. Was in a pinch and had too. 18 miles and didn't run out at that point.
I think someone has done this or the math and said around 20 miles or so in a thread. That fill up was 17.1 gallons if I remember correctly.
