Intresting
Just leave gas station after refill of 11l of RON 98 gasoline.
Trip meter 335km ODO 14721km
After leaving gas station looked on BC
This can't be true.....
Only 11l of 98 octane to 30l of 95


Something wrong.....

I filled up last weekend and my tank range is currently showing 639 miles which is 1,028km so 999 may be the limit.



Let's be careful out there!

No Kremmen  :D
This is i km not miles - when i leave gas station there was 1030 km
Look little bit lower
Average consumption  by computer only 2.7l/100km or 141MPG it’s only 18km after refill but  this newer happened before, my lowest average that I seen before is 3.3l in same driving conditions.
I newer filled 98 RON before.

What was the battery charge status when you refilled and was the gas station higher than wherever you travelled to? Either of these will temporarily result in an unrepresentative estimate of the fuel consumption which is then extrapolated to the estimated miles remaining which assumes that the journey so far is representative of the total.

The attached mpg was the result of a 6 mile trip including a 90m (300ft) drop although, IIRC, the battery has near minimum at both the start and end of the trip.

I've seen lots of similar posts elsewhere after filling up at a high elevation fuel station.

As we run into Winter I'm not expecting the sort of figures some are achieving. I'm expecting no more than ~ 60mpg once the heater is needed. My regular weekly journey is 30 miles, mainly motorway and fast dual carriage A road with only about 1 mile urban at each end.

When I entered gas station battery has 3 bars but this can be 31-39 %, the gas station on same height that my destination.
What’s different from my usual journey’s that engine was warmed up. Nothing more.
Now is 90 km after refill average staying on 3.1l/100km with average speed 24km/h (have short distance between runabouts and traffic lights) when possible speed kept 40km/h, something I noted is that momentarily consumption now always less than 20l/100km when engine run, actually more times kept across 12l/100km, and before mixing fuel grades game when engine run momentarily consumption rarely kept across 12l/100km, 70% of time close to 20l/100km, and when I starting to drive average consumption on trip meter B that resets every journey behaves differently- before mixing fuel always started count from 50l/100km (flat surface on parking lot) now starting counting from 25l/100km.
Maybe I see changes because our “95 RON” not 95 but from 95 to 92, sometimes I hearing pinging from engine (using 95 all the time).
Honda wants minimum 95 RON for our engine.
Whe have many gas station that fails on fuel quality check of diesel and gasoline sometimes quality so bad that octane rating can’t be checked .
Friend of mine refilled cheap priced 95 RON gasoline 6 months ago, when he get to home engine refused to start normal , he visited several repair shops and spend good amount of $ but nothing helped, problem gone only when all that cheap gasoline burned in engine.

Two jorneys about 14km one direction uphil(with cold engine at start) other downhill  same road (hot engine)
fuel ≥95 RON tyre pressure 2 PSI more then recommended for speed over 160 km/h (38PSI + 2 PSI front 36 PSI +2 PSI rear) it`s not advice to do that but i can say no difference on harsh road either 35 PSI or 38 PSI or 40 PSI and visualy protector of tyre still have contact with road as with 38 PSI for front or 36 PSI for rear, but have effect on rolling resistance.
Uphill average for trip 3.0l/100km
downhill average for trip 2.7l/100km
Average for 180km after refill 3.1l/100km
