Car Mileage/petrol Question?
Posted 12 May 2011 - 07:44 PM
We've done the same sort of mileage many a time and have had to put around 20-30 euros of petrol/diesel in. The only thing that I can think of is that the car was filled to the brim when we picked it up but as we filled it to the brim I'm still surprised. Incidentally we have to drive around 30km after we refill the car, admittedly it is mostly on a motorway but when we got to the car rental we were charged an extra 0.01euro for the diesel that we'd used in that 30km...
Is this the most fuel efficient car on the road?

I know it's unbelievable but I promise you that we did it! What we can't work out though is how?!
150 MPG? That's not possible. 50, maybe, but 150 is way out.
Yes, it was a full tank when we took it and when we returned it. When Alf said that he couldn't get anymore diesel in the tank at 5euros I thought he was holding the pump skew-whiff so I got out and took over and managed to dribble a little more in but when I took the pump out and looked in the diesel was showing and not dribbling down into the tank so it was super full when we returned it.
Was it full out full back? Perhaps it was super full when you got it.
I just wish that we could find the receipt so I could see exactly how many litres we put into it.
