How much does it cost you to fill your tank full from empty?

I haven't done it yet but am going to have to tommorow, I anticipate it costing around 40...

I am getting 45mpg but seem to have only managed 250 odd miles on a full tank. Thats less than half what Toyota claim.

Have something to contribute?

It depends what you fill in!

Diesel, Petrol, Super, Premium, ...
the new E10 or the E5 ......

The tank has a capacity of 32Liter. :rolleyes: From 34Liter filling there will be a see around your shoes :boxed:

I normally fill up when the gauge starts flashing, comes to around 28 to fill up.

Word of advise 2bars is the lowest you want to go if your iQ has a simular engine to my aygo it will have a 3way catalic converter which could get damage through miss fire which can be caused by running out of fuel or jump starting im not trying to worry you but it is a very bad practise to run tank till it flashes as these only work on average fuel left! If you want to no what your mpg is you dont need to use a full tank simply fill tank to rim then reset trip meter then run down to two bars at least then fill up again AT SAME GARAGE then keep receipt and note down trip meter mileage reading. When you get home with a caculater punch in the amount of liters then divide into 4.5 write this number down it may say 5.55555556 or somthing simular use 5.5 this is the figure you use with the mileage example me today- 365miles/ 27liters /27divide into 4.5 =6 gallons/ 365divide into 6 =60.8333333333 anyway to make it easier only take note of 60 not the .8333333333 this is a very close figure to what your car is doing mpg. Sorry if this bored you. 60mpg is my weelky average for the last 3 weeks 45mpg is a bit low for a iQ

Hi,
I fill mine up every Sunday afternoon i put between £20 and £25 a week in it, I always fill it to the brim so its easy to work out how many MPH my car is doing (as explained by Harrypotter before).

90% of my driving is motorway from Chorley to Manchester every day, I travel their at 6am and back at 4pm so the traffic is quite quiet, and I keep my speed at around 60mph so not to get in the way of any Heavy goods vehicles.

Because of this I always average around 68mph without fail.

I filled mine up today (58 plate) and it was flashing on one bar. It cost £34 to fill and I had managed 260 miles on a full tank of fuel. I have been driving very sedately over that time and the average MPG was at 46 during that tank.

I have no idea what hat equates to on terms of MPG. A friend who has one says they have to keep filling it up as the tank is so small.

I also notice that the tank remains full until 110 miles, then it starts to plummet very quickly. I lost 3 whole bars over around 40 miles. It all seems to work out as I would expect though, but it is nowhere near the 450 miles Toyota claim you can get from a tank.

I think you mean "g" rather than "h" in mph.

I have a keyboard thag creates misprints likt that all the timp!
