Well my wife ran the car till it had covered 415 miles from the first tank. The petrol light actually came on when it had 40 miles left on the range but i told her to take to 0 miles as these things over read anyway. She chickened out and filled the car back up when it had 10 miles left on the range.
Surprise surprise, it only took 45 litres to fill up, meaning it still had just over a gallon left in the tank. So to run it dry it could've done another 50 miles theoretically taking average mpg and the 10 miles left on the range. Making the full tank range roughly 415 + 50 = 465, so not far off the initial 470 mile range the day we picked it up. That equates to 42mpg, what i was expecting from the urban mpg as this thing barely goes above 30mph.
Whats interesting now is after filling the tank right up, the range expected from this tank is 515 miles! With this 2nd tank I told her to turn the eco setting off and see how she fares with the range, the stop start will still function as normal as neither my wife or I find it intrusive.
