I noticed too that the owners manual says 13.2, but then it also says 11.2 IMP (Imperical).the fuel tank is 13.2 gallons
You are in the US, so you are using US gallons. That's 13.2 for your car.the owners manual says 13.2, but then it also says 11.2 IMPIJT
Not at all. the light is supposed to come on when there are approximately 2 gallons still in the tank, to give you some reserve so you don't run out of gas. Looks like you are pretty darn close.When the low fuel indicator lights up and my gas gauge gets all the way down to E, I fill it up and it tops off just a tad shy of 11 gallons.
If the tank is 13.2, then something's has to be wrong with my fuel gauge.
Relationship to velocity
It is well known that the frictional force of aerodynamic drag increases significantly with vehicle speed. As early as the 1920s engineers began to consider automobile shape in reducing aerodynamic drag at higher speeds. By the 1950s German and British automotive engineers were systematically analyzing the effects of automotive drag for the higher performance vehicles. By the late 1960s scientists also became aware of the significant increase in sound levels emitted by automobiles at high speed. These effects were understood to increase the intensity of sound levels for adjacent land uses at a non-linear rate. Soon highway engineers began to design roadways to consider the speed effects of aerodynamic drag produced sound levels, and automobile manufacturers considered the same factors in vehicle design.
Hey! Who are you? Do I know you? LOL! :lol:Thank you for the tips as Im sure most of these some people know and some of these are dangerous.
The mileage he is getting is too terrible but leads back to my last post in this thread? Am I being ignored here lol?
Opps! Yes. I have been guilty drafting, but have stopped doing it.I wouldn't recommend drafting a large vehicle or deflating the spare tire just to save a few pennies.
But removing any excess weight you don't need and keeping a consistent vehicle speed and a low load on the engine will go pretty far in helping your fuel economy.
