Yesterday I fill up again
4.11 l/100 Km average (4.2 in BC)
First time I went to 1000 Km :woot:
Most travelling was made in Highway (60%), some country roads (35%) and City (5%) on smooth driving.
When the reserve light appears, the odometer was showing 900Km and when the bars disappear, I made 30 Km until fill up.
Only put 41.91 litters…how much the tank support? On the manual says 50l, but I think is a bit lower than that.
How much do you fill up your tanks?
My regular fill-ups happen at 35-38 L since I don't let the fuel level go below 2 Pips.
If I recall correctly, my tank is sized at 47.5L, but getting a 1,000km tank is very doable as long as we keep our averages at or below 4L/100km.
On a happy note, and since my weather is now improving I can now resume cranking out sub 4L/100km tanks as well.
Witch gasoline you often use? In my 3 tanks I used regular (where is 95oct) at the same pomp.
Do you think the 98oct is better? Its more expensive...
I think our octane is measured differently, because ours is 87 regular and 93 premium.
Aside from that, you're probably fine with the lowest grade. Check the manual. Mine says to use at least 86. You can't even buy gas rated that low here.
I don't think the higher grade will help your mileage.
The general consensus is that the lowest octane gas is also the best for the HCH-II. The higher octane levels have been found to decimate FE which is particularly noticeable in a relatively heavy car with a 1.3L ICE.
The higher octane rating there could come from a higher percentage of ethanol.
It means that i dont need to waste money on higher octane fuel.
Well in the end off this month I think I'll buy a new toy for my HCH.
An Scangauge I find ao online store on ebay.co.uk from Greece, EU (no cost taxes). It will cost arround 150€. I'll buy because the HCH's BC dont have many options like average speed, km's to empty and many options.
On the first time, did I have to make some calibration no the device?
Yes you have to set up
Speed (My Trip Traveled and my Odometer was off till I did that)
Set Fuel to Hybrid
Oh after 1 or 2 gas tanks you should be set.
Btw to ensure the gas tank is full as possible,
and to keep the differences from different pumps minimal
I fill up the gas tank all the way to the top, until I can actually see the fuel.
Pumps vary widely in stopping when Pumping.
