My car starts out averaging 540 KM to empty when I fill it but it shows empty by 450 KM at the most before I fill it. 90% city, short trips and lots of hills.The onboard computer is a mess anyway. It is so way off real fuel consumption (as measured at the pump) that it might as well exist in an alternate universe with different laws of physics. I have seen other cars where the computer is a tad optimistic about the fuel consumption, but the DS just gives you a blank-faced lie and expects to get away with it.
I generally have to add about 1.5l / 100km to the reading on the dashboard to get close to reality.
Was going to take MGLarry's advise but with the grand kids in the car I decided against it.>OK, here's what you should do (notice I said you and not me ). Fill your car all the way up, and run it until it runs completely dry and you coast to a stop -out of gas. Record mileage. That way you take the computer out of the equation.:nerd:
Let me know how it goes
Press the silver button on the end of the turn signal stalk. That will cycle through info. at the bottom the the center display, ECO mode info., date, distance to empty, etc.I am a new Land Rover owner. I can't figure out where to find distance to empty miles or how to have it displayed. Can anyone help?
