Re: Modus DCI 86 fuel Gauge Accuracy?

Thanks for the replies to this thread. Just by way of an update.

I have had my G Modus diesel for about two months now and it has been a little difficult to truly test the fuel efficiency due to the bad weather and not using the car much.

However, at the New Year I did manage a good run from Wakefield up to near Newcastle and return and the car gave me 62 mpg which is very good. It has to be said though that on filling the tank the first three bars on the fuel gauge do seem to disappear very quickly but then the gauge seems to settle down.

The computer is showing accurately that the gallons used does correspond to the mileage covered.

In conclusion it does seem that all is OK with the fuel consumption. I have now done 400 miles since last fill and have two bars left and it is showing 200 range (I know this is theoretical, but ...). Once you get used to the three bars going quickly all is OK.
