    Can anyone tell me what's the best range they can get on a full tank of gas. i am shocked at my numbers. Today i filled up and my range was 480km until empty. My Jag XF 4.2 V8 was giving me 700 plus km until empty whenni first got it. then I averaged out to between 590km to 630km until empty on a full tank .
     
  2. The "range till empty" is based on the kind of driving you've just been doing, so if you've been doing a heap of city driving the estimate will be based on that and a lot less than if you had just driven 700km on the open road at a constant cruising throttle. if you go out on the highway now and drive for a while you'll see that "range till empty" go up the longer you cruise.

    Odd - I've been measuring in fathoms this whole time.

    ......and the Stingers have a very small fuel tank

  9. Yeah you cant really compare cars like that. How large is the fuel tank on the Jag? I would guess its significantly larger than the Stingers.

    Jaguar XF fuel capacity is 19.5 gallons; mileage for the 4.2L is listed as 25.5 combined mpg = 497.25 miles of range.

    Stinger GT has a 15.9 gallon tank and 20 combined mpg = 318 miles of range. (had 25 combined here before, but that's for the 2.0T)

    So, there's your increased range. The Jag just has a large fuel tank and better fuel economy. Which if Kia is listening for ideas for the 2021 refresh, please add a larger fuel tank. An extra 3.5 gallons would really help add some "touring" to the Grand Touring aspect of the car.

    Looks good in print. But I am not interested in altering the car's fore and aft balance; nor giving up any cargo space for extra gallons. I certainly would not want this car's profile to look higher in the ass end because of a bigger fuel tank.

    Four more gallons would make the tank ~3" longer (front to back) or ~1" deeper.

    I don't tend to drive over 4 hrs in one go, but it would be nice to be able to drive up to the Dragon and have a day of fun without needing to fill up.

    I don't get all the complaints about range. The high on my first Stinger was 372mi on a full tank, and here on my new one I've got 369mi range the next morning as I was waiting for the oil to warm up a bit. (this pic was from a few months ago because someone else asked me about the range, lol)

    [​IMG]

    The lowest I've had was about 300mi range, and that was because I literally only drove 5.4 miles each day for several weeks to and from work without any client site appointments, lol

    Granted, I use cruise control religiously, and I'm getting the feeling that's a factor for all you lead footers... :rofl: My previous car was about 320mi range high, 260mi low, so I've gone up!

    ~365 miles range is quite "low" imo. That is just above my 500km range fuled up.
    With my previous car (volvo v70-16) i had over 1000km range filled up. :D

    We're trying to keep the comparison within the same species of fruit, lol

    And also, 369mi is closer to 600km. And I believe your V70 had a 0-60 of, like, 10 seconds :rofl:
