There is no way you are going to get 500km on a tank for city driving unless that city is real small (like 200 people) and there are miles between lights!
You can get 500km on a tank of regular doing highway or rural and driving close to the speed limit, but I doubt you will ever get that with city driving.
I have a 2014 Ti, live in Oakville, drive city, drive highway, drive 120kmh, and here is what my FE does after 20k km on it (all on a 'good day'):
Highway 120-130kmh: ~425km
Rural roads (80kmh speed limit, me driving 100kmh): ~500km
Rural roads with me doing the speed limit: maybe ~550km, have never done this as cannot drive the speed limit
These are approximate numbers, I didn't drive to where I only had fumes left in the tank, I probably did have the 'low fuel' warning come on though.
If you want to get the FE to 8-9L/100km type of range, you are going to have to drive real slow and don't use the gas pedal!
I would say my average for the FE after a year is 12.5L/100km.
I consider myself an average driver, not too slow, not too fast, drive with the majority of traffic, which of course is always above the speed limit
this is all great information. thank you.
i guess i was concerned because getting i'm only seeing about 315 kms or 200 miles from a tank of gas, WAY under what the dealership promised me.
i was expecting to see more like 500 kms or 300 miles from a tank.
i am sceptical that warmer temperatures will produce an increase of 200 kms per tank. i hope i am wrong about that.
