Hi there

I was wondering what avg. FC others have achieved. I'm driving 2.4i Geartronic and have clocked 3000km. My avg F.C. is at 1L/10km or ~ 23.5 mpg. (60% city/40% hi-way). This is slightly below what the brochure says.

S40 2.4i Geartronic/30% tinted windows/Safari Green

My wife is the primary driver, and she has been getting ~26-27mpg. Although she has noticed that the red low fuel light comes on early. The manual says it has a 16.5 gallon tank and the low fuel light should come on with 1.5 gallons left. I've filled up after the light has come on and it only takes 12.5 to 13 gallons. I'm tempted to bring along a full gas can and drive another 50 miles after light comes just to see how long I can go after light comes on.
BTW: car is a 2004.5 S40 2.4i
