DTE read 7 kms (4 miles) was the lowest I have had it, usually fuel up once the gas light comes on, that is 90 litres once its on and I get canadian tire money when I buy gas there, usually about 4 bucks in CDN tire money every week... adds up quick to buy tools and such

I was driving cross country last spring in the middle of the night and after the EVIC stopped giving me a distance to empty I drove another 20km.

Once it hits 1/2 tank I fill up in winter... And when it hit's 1/4 in summer I fill up...


Guys that are running your tanks low... Just a FYI... The fuel pump assembly uses gas to keep the pump cool... Everytime you warm that pump up from not enough gas in the tank... You're taking off time on that pump...

My exwifes parents would drive me insane when I went somewhere with them. They would never put more than two gallons in their Oldsmobile at a time. I don't think the fuel light ever went off. They had to replace the fuel pump every six months. I don't go below a 1/4 in the summer, and 1/2 in the winter.
