Your MPG calc is based on driving attributes/past attributes. So, say, youve been driving like a maniac for a full tank, go fill up, check the guage it will base its "range" on how you drove recently. Over time, it will correct itself. Get out on a long road, set the cruise at 70 and you'll get well over that 171 and the calculator will begin to correct for that. I forget the range, but those calculators are based on


'previous X miles driven, this is how he normally drives given those previous X miles, so safe to assume XX is how far he'll go before he needs to fill up'




'ok, so over the last X miles, he was getting XXmpg, so, change the range number to this instead'

Reset your “average MPG” and then drive a few miles- you’ll see your actual range based on your driving style and new average MPG.

Filled up yesterday and went for a cruise ... 150 miles later I was at about a half of a tank. Greta Thunberg would be very proud!

yeah the most I have been able to coax out of mine on careful 70mph 6th gear cruise is ~19.4 MPG, which got me a touch over 200 miles out of a tank.

Yes this makes more sense. It’s based on past driving pattern. Ok cool, going to let my mom drive my Z for a while and will go from there...thanks Judge

That comment was funny too funny. Greta Thunberg: “How dare you get 171 miles per tank.” STHU, suck on my exhaust tail pipe.
