V6 KM per Tank ?
 
I know it's been covered in the regular forum in MPG per tank , but I'm sick of converting miles to km's and litres to gallons , so for all of us Canadians , how many KM's do you get per tank ?

I set my trip meter at every fill and nail about 535 kms / tank .

so that puts you at 573 kms for the tank without adjusting for the tires , 552 +/- when you factor in the smaller tires .

I strive for 450 kms before the light comes on and can only achieve that with significant highway driving.....My problem is that almost all of my driving is City, and realistically I'm 425.

I get around 400-450 per tank, but I do a lot of city driving so that definitely kills my millage. I also track what I get out of a tank with the trip meter.

To be honest I wish we went to the metric system here in the states. So much easier to deal with than the english system. Just my opinion from an engineer's point of view. :crapstorm:

What the hell is a KM? You mean like mud tires?

Ridiculous. We do not have those in the United States, therefore they do not exist.

Squad , do you pay attention to how many litres you put in when you gas up ? I started really paying attention to my mileage ( kilometerage ? ) and I found I was filling when the light came on at about 450 but usually still had 15 litres in the tank , so 450 kms at 65 litres is 6.9 kms / litre , so for the full 80 we should expect 552 +/- ,

no cuz those are even smaller than stock but it is winter driving so they probably cancel eachother out

You're right , I had factored in the wrong stock tire size , you have a trd , no ? Stock tire size should be 265 / 65 / 17 which are 3.5 % larger than 245 / 70 /16 according to the site tire size calculator . So you're mileage would be 552.94 .;)

Good point OZ.....So instead of pushing your luck,you are estimating the fuel remaining when the light comes on?

Tsenekos 01-05-2010 07:09 AM

400km it uses 60 Litres :mad:

Are you? :rolleyes:

And please refrain from calling me stupid when you're too slow to get the joke. You look like a moron to anyone with half an ounce of perception.

Yes I am serious, in your reply you didn't have a smiley icon or lol to indicate you were joking... What did you expect from text, mind readers?

No, I expected Moto's response, which is why everything worked fine...until reading the whole thread went out of style.


I'll admit, I have a penchant for trolling the less perceptive. But they deserve it.
