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.

From our second fill-up in first month of ownership. Snapped this photo on 6/13/18.

621.1 miles

353.2 EV

  52.3 mpg indicated

12.09 gal fuel added

  51.4 mpg calculated

Remaining range 83 miles

 

The C-Max seems well-suited to my wife's 45 mile round trip commute on medium speed county roads with stop lights.

 

Through 8/4/18 and 3,600 miles tracked:

Average mpg: 51.2 calculated

Best mpg: 54.4 and 54.2 (last two fill-ups)

Best miles before fill-up: 659 and 655 (last two fill-ups)

Displayed range: 730 miles (typical)

What was your actual gas used? I most of the time put 13 to 13.5 gallons in my car with the car holding 13.9-14 gallons. It is pretty safe to go to 0 to E and have 25 miles to go. :)

Thanks for the tip, ptjones. I updated our stats above.  Am using the Fuelly app to track long-term.

 

Updated again 8/4/18 after 3,600 miles tracked.
