distance to next fill display.


Hi all, I have a well kept and Nissan serviced 2012 xtrail (T31) and I fill it until I see it come to the top of the fill tube. I used to get a prospective mileage indicated of around 710 Km. and now I only get around 620Km. This has been the case for months even though I am the only driver and my habits haven't changed. I read a post about the air filter last year and I have had that checked and cleaned at every service. Has anyone any ideas?

Almost a year since you asked the question Geordie, I found adding a roof rack increased fuel consumption, likewise carrying round extra "stuff" will do the same, you haven't done either of those? What about tyres and pressures, any changes there?

Re: distance to next fill display.


Hi,

I noticed similar issues recently. When I purchased the car I had to work out my average litres per 100Km for some upcoming longer remote trips. Since then I felt like I wasn't getting so many kms out of a tank. Did the same test (fill the tank up, rest the trip computer and after filling up again worked out the average fuel per 100kms. Repeat). Turns out the car was using around 2 litres more per 100kms. Not as massive as I thought but still something.

My mate suggested what Kiwi Sailor said regarding excess gear and hence weight in the boot of the car. I also checking the tires. Turns out the biggest thing was actually I had some new King Springs in the boot of the car (I'm waiting to have them installed at the next service) and a bunch of heavy car camping equipment I'm hauling around (yep I was too lazy to take out of the boot and find a place to store emoticon ). I reckon weighing that all up, there was easily 30 to 50kg of junk.

Since removing it all, my latest test has me back into 'normal' range.

This is a lesson that you can't assume the "normal" consumption figures can be used for estimating usage on trips, especially if there is a lot of low-speed 4WDing involved.
