Fuel tank/economy

Just wondered as on net seems to state fd2 same as uk type r with 50l fuel tank
But this can't be??? I've twice done 25 miles past it saying 0 (empty) as I know have quite bit in reserve

Both times I've filled tank and both times filled with 39+ litres

I was thinking its 45 litre tank but now convinced it's only 40? as above can't still off had 5 litres left after going 25 past empty

Also I'm getting same out of tank as ep3 and fn2 300 mile, so really impressed as must be smaller tank

Got 350 mile other week when was on hol and travelled further

My dad only gets 300 out of 45 litre tank in a nissan note 1.4 lol so for me to get same in my fd2 is awesome

I am convinced it's smaller than 50L too mate. Yesterday, I was down to just one brick on the gauge and then I absolutely brimmed the tank. I only squeezed in 37.5 litres!

Agreed, but let's be honest, we didn't buy these cars for their fuel consumption!

It's a 50l tank. When the last block on the guage goes out you still have two gallons left.

47l was the most I got in IIRC.

Agree with this /\/\/\ I once had to drive up the motorway for 20 miles with all the bricks gone and fuel light on. When I came to fill it up, I couldn't get more than 40L in

What I'm saying is at most just under 40litres to fill bout 50 quid and in return get 300 miles
Which I'm very impressed with

It's definitely 50 but think what you will. As I said, with all the bricks gone and fuel light on you have about 2 gallons left which is nearly 10litres. I did a lot of motorway driving and knew I could get away with doing another 60 miles easily with the bricks gone.

Best I ever had on a run was 39mpg.
