I'm usually surprised with the variation in the number of miles I get before the first bar on the fuel guage goes out - I think it must be due to different fuel pumps and when they cut out when your tank is full.

My best mileage is 92 miles before the first bar has gone out, running on French hypermarket diesel on the way back from a daytrip (motorway/A-road driving). The worst is definitely in winter, and was in December 07 at 65 miles. Like I said before, a huge variation from the 92. Most regularly, the first bar usually goes out in the late 70s/early 80s.
I mainly use Sainsbury's diesel, sometimes Morrisons, always with two squirts of Millers Diesel Power Sport 4.
