    Arrow Audi Trip Computer fuel Range .........

    .......... i think the recent hot weather got too it........ if only 1,000mile range was possible.



    If only that range is possible.

    Sadly that'll change after you drive for a while. It calculates the range based on the most recent data it has about your consumption AFAIK. So if you were getting really high mpg figures just before you filled up then I suppose it's think you were going to carry on like that.
    I always enjoy the game where the DIS says you've got 40 miles to empty, and you drive like a saint for your journey to work and arrive there with 55 miles left.

    I know what you mean, 1000 miles would be epic. I'd only have to fill up every 6-8 weeks!
    You've done pretty good with 687 though.
    Now: 2010 A3 SB S-Line Black Edition 2.0TDi 140CR. Panther Black

    Gone: 2007 A3 SB Sport TDI 140. Dolphin Grey

    687 was this weeks work mileage, so it was good to make a tank last a whole week.

    I knew about the trip computer fibbing, just thought 1,000miles was amusing and shows Audi programmed it to show that high.

    I still had 2 litres + any capacity in the filler left when i filled up so maybe 700miles is possible

    I don't hang around! But I don't want lose my licence on work time! There is a specific way to combine speed/time/mpg which I have mastered over the years.
