Fuel Tank - Maximum fill - who’s managed the most?

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

Just how much fuel does the tank in the Exige take? I’ve always filled my 410 when it’s dropped to the last 1 or 2 bars but yesterday ran it longer so that there was just 1/2 of one bar left and the yellow fuel light was on. 

The tank took 40.79 litres before the pump clicked off. 

So who has managed to run it lower and squeeze more into a standard production tank? And what is your record fill amount?

Thx

JC

I had a rather tense drive down the M4 not long after I got my car and ran with 0 bars on the gauge for the last 10 miles or so.  Fill up took 42.something litres so if the 48l capacity is true, I still had a bit of range left :)

I usually fill up when it gets into the 2nd bar though and fill up in the 35l - 38l range

I am very similar. Generally refill at 2 bars and put in 35 litres give or take. 

One thing is sure, the first 4 bars last much longer than the last 2 and the first 2 bars are usually worth 100 miles on a run with the next 2 being worth 80 and the last two 40 miles.

I managed to fill 43.18l in my sport 380 (48 l tank). I had no more bar and yellow fuel light for quite a long time.

it looks like the yellow light is showing quite early, most of the time there is still one full bar. In that case I can only refill 38 l, so there is a quite large margin before running out of fuel, but not sure the last litres are really usable :o So better to stay safe and drive a maximum of 50 kms, my exige consumption is around 9 or 10 litres for 100 km at a quiet pace

56l 😎

Blimey you took your time George! I was expecting you so much sooner :thumbsup:  my " So who has managed to run it lower and squeeze more into a standard production tank? " was aimed squarely at you.

 

Now that you are here... how many miles on a run do you get from 56l?
