From a full fill up to when the gas light comes on, how many miles can you drive your CT200 before the fill up?
Surely that is 6.2L/100km, right? If so, you are at 38mpg, which is pretty close to the highway rating. Also, if the weather is cold, mileage will suffer, particularly in hybrids.Hi all I'm new to this forum, and I got one of these for a little more than a week now, loving it!
But how do you guys get such low mileage? I know I'm still in my breaking in period and I'm in Toronto like Corrado, but I'm only getting 6.2L/km (and that is with a lot of highway driving!).
I've also tried to be extremely gentle on the acceleration, but it's so slow that way and I feel embarrassed blocking the cars behind me...
Do you guys use Normal or Eco mode mostly? I've tried only using Eco for a day for pure city driving, and that actually increased my fuel consumption! I guess Eco is only good for the bad rush hour bumper to bumper traffics?
That's some interesting data, ECO mode is worst than Normal and Sport mode. I know the ECO mode is highly dependent on the driver's driving methods and unless you feather the throttle, you are probably making the car work harder. I would like to know if you changed your driving style when on ECO mode? I would guess not, you seem to drive a whole lot and probably don't have the patience for that (I know I don't). Never the less, great info.I have just gotten thru my 3rd fillup in my CT200H. Each time the fuel gauge read about 1/8 full when I did the refill and the miles remaining was in the 40-60 mile range. Anyway driving on all 3 tanks was a combination of highway and city driving (20 miles to and from work dailey) and pleasure driving on the weekend for shopping and other errands. I will also say I did not drive with a lead foot when accelerating.
Tank 1: 398 Miles/8.99 Gal = 44.3 MPG Normal Mode Only
Tank 2: 395 Miles/9.12 Gal = 43.3 MPG Sport Mode Only
Tank 3: 376 Miles/8.81 Gal = 42.7 MPG Eco Mode Only
Started on my 4th tank and I plan on repeating this sequence once more.
I believe the CT200 uses bladder type gas tanks, from my experience on the Prius when its cold, the bladder shrinks or stiffens and you will not be able to put as much gas and when its hot it will expand and more gas can be added.i'm getting a little irritated with the discrepancy in the fuel gauge and actual fuel left in the tank. i'm going to run my current tank to the gas light and compare that with the computer's data and actual amount of gas put in the tank on the fill up.
