Oil or fuel?
This was around Eastern when we drove a convoy of donated fire fighting vehicles to the Polish-Ukrainian boarder.
My car has a 69 litre tank and I have seen a range of over 1,400km on the dial.This was around Eastern when we drove a convoy of donated fire fighting vehicles to the Polish-Ukrainian boarder.
I was driving the escorting Volkswagen T5 with long wheelbase and 115 hp 2.0 single turbo diesel. trip = distance from start (filled up) “Reichweite” means estimated range.
The calculations as we have seen can get you into trouble if not correct or above, but what is correct and as emax points out driver ability and attention to usage. The big differences weight, load and general conditions, road, and weather. I have spoken before about owning many diesels and what you learn from them, treat them correctly and the rewards are plenty and only get better with time and kms...premium diesel has premium results for the engine and kms...happy motoringThese are calculations based on government regulations. They are designed to squeeze as much tax out of owners as possible. They certainly don't take into account how drivers actually drive, especially those who pay attention to their fuel consumption.
