good stuff... after the throttle controller I am literally at 300 per E light... thats with 70% city
Nope there is not consistency to the light. Or at least not in my car. Let us know how many you get in that tank. Good MPG's are money in the bank arty:Rob,
Sorry I didn't clarify, but that is exactly what I do... divide miles driven by gallons it takes to fill. I'm at 365 miles and the light still hasn't come on yet.
Is it pretty consistent for you when the E light comes on?
Of course you can overfill your tank. You can fill right up to the neck if you want. That is exactly why I said you need to use the same gas pump. Also you will want to pump slowly. The reason for it shutting off prematurely is you are pumping to fast and the gas is not flowing into the tank fast enough. It's backing up in the filller neck and choking off the nozzle and shutting the pump down.Well the auto shut off at the gas station isnt completely accurate either. I can put about $3 more in my tank once it shuts off.
It matters alot. If you drive 400 miles and for some reason the pump shuts off at 9 gallons you calculate 44.44mpg. Now say that pump shut off prematurely and in actuality it was suppose to shut off at 10.5 gallons. You really only got 38.09 mpgI don't think it matters when if the auto shut off occurs simply because the I will still use the amount of gas pumped divided into the miles driven... or does it matter?
