What's your largest gas fill up??? is "... Miles to Empty Acurate?"

I don't mean in dollars .. but in VOLUME of fuel.

I was coming home Friday after lunch and the fule pump icon on the dash lit up ... "15 miles to empty"

Pulled in ASAP and the Commander took 66.029 litres of gas ...

That's 17.45 US Gallons ...my owner's manual says fule capacity is 79 litres or 20.8 US Gallons.

I'm thinking the "... miles to empty" is not that acurate?

I know that I've put in more than 20 gallons before (not much, but some). And I've driver over 20 highway miles with "0 miles to empty" on the EVIC.

I've put 19.6 gallons in. I think the "miles to empty" thing is rated to when your gas light comes on ( at the empty mark on gauge ). I have gone 28 miles with the light on ( V6 ).

I dont think I have ever been able to fit more then 16 gallons in my tank. That is with the display reading approx. 30 miles to empty. Im not sure how you fit over 20 gallons in PolarBZ.

What is the Canada/US exchange rate. That seems expensive for 17 gallons. That would be about $34 US dollars here. I dont think the measurement of the tanks are accurate, as I've always been able to put right at if not more than the measured size in every vehicle I've owned. I know there is some room in the gas filler tube and lines,but not that much.

Yes gas cost more here ... The exchange rate for gas is complicated though

1 CDN Dollar = 80 cents US
1 IMP Gallon = 4.54 Litres = 1.2 US Gallons

So if I got 66.03 Litres that's 17.45 US Gallons for $53.68 CDN or $42.94 USD for that much gas.

So that would equal $2.94 USD per US Gallon.

There's more to it than that of course .. there's a lot of tax in gas prices, and we get a lot back from taxes here ... and cost of living is different too ..

Minimum wage in Ontario is going up to $10.25 in March, I pay about $500 a year for Commander insurance ($500 collision deductible and 2 million liability) for a couple comparisions
