Miles to empty?
Is this for idiots?
How accurate is it?
I have a 16 Fusion I use for my work car. It has 135k on it and still runs like a top. I change the oil every 10k with a Motorcraft filter and 5.7 qts of Mobile 1. On the oil drain I still get back about 5.5 qts.
The gas tank capacity is 16.5 gal. When I run the car down to 9-10 miles to empty and do a fillup, I can only squeeze about 14.5 gal in.
I wait until the pump shuts off, let it 'rest" a few seconds, then I can get about .4-.5 gal of additional fuel in.
So, am I not getting a full 16.5 gal in or is the miles to empty inaccurate for stupid people who dont pay attention?
I usually do a fillup somewhere around 50 miles to empty, but depending on gas prices I sometimes run it lower to save a couple bucks.
