Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Mpg Check

Recommended Posts

I have just bought a new Yaris T Spirit Automatic. Does anyone know how to set the cruise computer for an average mpg for a set distance. I would assume that one of the trip meters would be set to zero and then do 'something else'. I am sure that the salesperson said that it could be done but how?

Thanks :huh:

Dunno what type of "Curise computer" there is in your T-spirit.. but best way to work out the average MPG is to fill the tank to the brim... record the mileage, or reset the trip computer

drive around as normal until your at least down to the last quater...fill it to the brim again...and not the mileage.

now you know how far you've been...and the number of litres of fuel used.

Change the litres into Gallons No. Litres multiplied by 0.206 .. now you have the number of Gallons..and the miles...hence the MPG

Ta,

I thought it was 45 so I'd put that in the mpg calculator against 270 miles (think I usually get about that with a full tank), so 37.5 gives me a slightly better figure.

Not much though at 32.73 mpg!

Aye it's 45 litres to a tank.... but how do you know you did 270 miles to a Tank?

Ran her dry..run out of gas? and 37 isn't all that great for the model you have. Should be easily hitting 45. Grief, I'm averaging 42 in the TS. Depends on the conditions though I guess.

42!!! My average won't go above 28. Then again I'm a bit throttle happy.

Don't know for definite it's 270, but I 'think' that's what I usually get on the clock - and that's before it's run out of gas too so I never know how much is left over. I'll do a proper calculation, and I'll try to drive more sensibly too!

9.9 gallons

or

37.475584089154036006844025861938 litres

thats US Gallons silly

1 gallon = 4.546 litres

therefore 9.9*4.546= 45.0054litres
