Hi, I have a LRDS SE. Has anyone share experienced this? Every time I fill up my tank, it shows how many miles to empty, but as soon as I leave, the miles to empy reduces by 5 miles & they continue to decrease by that amount even if I haven't driven that far.

Does it stabilize at some point? If it does then what you're seeing is the system adjusting to the real MPG's, if not and you really think something is wrong, take it into your local dealer. Even test drive what the dealer has on their lot to see how the MPG numbers act compared to yours.

In other threads there are posts regarding the software update that corrects a fuel guage issue. This may be the same issue.

Here is a baseline of my driving results w/ the various fuel type and driving mode combinations. I pretty much use the same route to/from work each day (which incorporates approx. 50% highway and 50% city), however, keep in mind traffic congestion may be heavier on certain days. I was hoping Eco Mode would result in better gas mileage but no.

I'm driving the Diesel Variant


Mixed Highway (80%) / City (20%) driving I am using 5.3Lt/100Kms or 1.4 G to 62.1Mi

City only driving I am using 9.7Lt/100Kms or 2.56G to 62.1Mi

I use the same roads each day on city driving and mostly during peak hour times, stop start is always on. Driving the car in manual mode (which I prefer) has negligible difference on fuel consumption.

No fuel gauge issue on my car-

and one year later- same trip returns 7.1Lt/100Kms which is not good at all

My city only driving is around 10Lt/100kms- which is really poor- So either my driving has got very unpredictable and rough, traffic has got a **** of a lot worse in my city OR there is something wrong with the car!!

getting sick of raising issues with this car to the dealer!
