I wish it would go negative showing miles past zero - our little Honda Fit does.

When I hit zero I look at my trip gauge to see how many miles I have and then compute from there.  I have gone 60 miles on empty and I have run out before 30 miles. :headscratch:

I filled up the other day and my estimated was 714Miles. I had a 40 mile trip With 63.4 MPG in that tank which probably helped.

I filled up the other day and my estimated was 714Miles. I had a 40 mile trip With 63.4 MPG in that tank which probably helped.

I'm sure it did.  It would be interesting to know what formula is used for MTE.  I started keeping a record of MTE at fill-up and for these 40 samples it has varied from 573 to 816 with an average of 670.  The 816 MTE was after a 61 MPG tank and the 573 was after a 44 MPG tank (though only 1.5 gal for that fill-up).  Below is a graph of MTE versus MPG for tank where I have deleted some of the smallest fill-ups (2-3 gal).  The equation comes out to:

   MTE = 13.23 x MPG + 2.8

The 2.8 should most likely be 0 making the 13.2 the assumed "usable" size of the tank.  Actually, the car seems to report 0 MTE when the tank only needs about 12.6 gallons to fill.  Of course I don't know if the equation uses the entire tank average or is weighted towards the later part of the tank.
