Sorry if the subject looks like the thread has been done to death, but i wanted to check something with you. I understand the Avant (non quattro) has a 65 litre tank. I've done just over 1000 miles and i am on my second full tank (there was initially half a tank in it when i bought it from New).
i engaged in a game of Fuel Light bingo this afternoon and relented as the DIS turned to 5 miles range as i really dont know what to expect from the car. I topped up to the brim with 58.59 litres of Diesel, which i make as nearly 6.5 litres (nearly 1.5 gallons) still remaining. The fuel needle was definately on R when i stopped, but was wondering if there really was that ammount left in the tank and if the DIS is just being pesimistic. I'd covered nearly 480 miles so im getting what seems like 37mpg (not great from a diesel in my opinion ), but was wondering about the range.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
