I normally get about 300-330 miles to a tank in my 1.3 T-Spirit, which I think is very good, but I was amazed at the weekend with how much I exactly got out of her!

I filled up at home and went to Rugby, picked up my mate and off we went to Wales, 125 miles... then off to Chippenham which was 50 miles.

When I left home it was showing 300 miles, and it was on 125 as I was leaving Chippenham, so I thought, I'll fill her up again as I had another 125 miles to go back home.

So I did - and the range sat at 370 miles! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

I'm just so amazed that 175 miles of motorway driving has increased the efficiency by that much!

Put it this way - I might be doing bigger journeys more often if I get that sort of range - I was gobsmacked! :D :D

Plus it did her the world of good too - and she was marvellous throughout! I was so proud of her beings as all she does is 6 miles a day! :thumbsup: Now over 3800 miles in 10 months! :lol::lol::thumbsup:

Thats quite good ....... did you get lost on the way to wales?

It's true what one fellow TOCer said 'high revs once in a while does increase the effeciency of the engine'  :thumbsup: !

No, I am super directional goddess now! :lol:

And I know its not got super efficient overnight - I'm not that much of a girl! :lol: But I just thought it was pretty cool and its really given me the confidence to do more!

But with my best mate in Wales now, looks like I will be anyway regardless! :thumbsup:

Yes, the range feature is calculated using the average mpg and mph figures. The better your mpg, the better your range.

In my P1 1.0 Yaris I once reset the mpg on the move then carried on at an average of 40mph or so (in Wales as it happens!).

Got 60mpg out of her.

Nothing wrong with long journeys at all IMO :)

I've done 30 miles in the Blue today..went to work & take the no-traffic route which is 14 miles, then left work & went straight through to Lakeside..filled up with Petrol and average MPG was 45.3! Also had to go to B & Q to get some vouchers for my Dad's Birthday and then back home...4 miles ;) Range showed 370 miles (give or take a few) too after filling up :)

Can't fault it!

Yeah, its just so smart to be able to recalculate like that!

I've never done that amount of motorway driving before, on the way back it was the Fosse Way, which probably didnt do much good as it was all stop and start, but still, am incredibly impressed and I'm aiming to get it higher! :thumbsup:

Well put it this way Matt, now I've got this confidence boost, I plan on attending a few northern meets in the future - although I doubt I can go Brighton to Blackpool - what is that, like 4-5 hours driving?

Saying that I managed 2 1/2 hours with no problems, just a slight stiff neck! :thumbsup:

And I was determined to do it and I did - and all on my own as well, without any back seat drivers!

Oooh and I passed my 10 months! My curse is over! (Touch wood!) :D :D
