    Fuel economy: What year vehicle and how many kilometres per tank?

    Registered users don't see these ads.
    Like Boots' thread, but for fuel economy.

    2010 Civic automatic
    - Mostly city driving/stop and go
    - Averaging 11.3 L/100 km - 22 MPG
    - Best to date: 5.4L/100 km - 44 MPG (all highway)
    - Worst to date: 13.4L/100 km - 17 MPG
    - Shell 87 octane
    - Only ~5,700 km on the car so far since August, so hopefully it keeps getting better

    too many unknown variables. My car doesn't have a gas mileage display like my cobalt did.

    I just keep track in a spreadsheet.

    In the city, I normally get 460+ km's from full til the gas light comes. Assuming it's a 45 litre tank and there's 2 litres left, that would be 9.3 L/ 100 KM
    On the highway, I can get 650+ km's from full til the gas light comes on, so that would be 6.6 L/ 100 KM

    Really? So the gas light comes on with like 7-8 litres left? I normally fill up when the light comes on, and I think it normally takes 42-43 litres.

    Yep, I think the reserve is between 5-7L. I'd have to check the manual to be sure.

    2008 fit, i average about 500-600km per tank. Tank is roughly 40l. Gas light usually turns on when theres 6-7L left, so its very fuel efficient

    This reminds me of when my uncle gave me a spreadsheet to fill out and do the math to know my consumption. Not really sure what I get, haven't been keeping track since we don't drive that much. I might fill the tank 1.5 times a month.

    If you don't believe me, search for it or read the manual. It's a 50L tank, end of story. You know fuel tanks have a reserve of a few L when the light comes on, right? Unless you run the tank bone dry, you're never going to be able to fill it with 50L.

    Edit: A 2002 Civic is a 7th gen, not an 8th. 2006+ Civics are not the same as the 2002. Either way, even the 7th gens had a 50L tank.

    I usually put between 42-45L in the car and get 550-600km mixed highway/city so it's 7-8.2L/100km

    Wife's car: no clue

    Bike I go about 225 on 15L = 6.7L/100km

    99 Venture van 90L tank, approx $105 to fill, get 700ish km so avg 20-22MPG
    07 Wave 45L tank, approx $52 to fill, get 500ish km so avg 29-31MPG

    not sure about the Civic yet.

    I get gas at Esso, I actually find I get less Mileage with Irving, and the Old van and the old Sunfire I had would barely run with Wilsons gas and the mileage was terrible. I use regular 87 octane fuel.

    I can tell you from personal experience that you can get approximately 120-150 km's from the fuel light to near empty. I made the mistake of not fuelling up one day and just decided to risk it and got 140 km's when I hit the fuel station. No bars left on the gauge and it took 50 litres to fill, so technically I would have likely had a few litres to get me even further.
    My best tank so far in my 06 Civic was 920 km's.I haven't kept track of my mileage but that was my best tank ever. Normal 40 ish litre fill ups will get me 650 km's mixed city and highway, winter time I only get about 500 to the same tank. My last trip from Alberta to Nova Scotia I burned 510 dollars worth of fuel for the round trip. My fuel economy went down the shitter after my last fill up in Quebec heading east.

    I don't doubt that at all, I tried it in my old Accord once and got around 120 km after the light came in. I got ridiculous fuel economy in the Civic on the highway when I babied it, I love it, lol.
