Fuel Tank Size

Post by SJukeF » Mon Mar 25, 2013 3:19 pm

Mine is certainly like that and from what I have read on various forums this is a common problem. I find the fuel gauge and the "km to go" figure to be so inaccurate as to be useless. On my car the l/100 km figure is usually spot on or very close, so I re-set that and a trip meter every time I fill up. I then do a bit of mental arithmetic to come up with my own "km to go" figure that has proved very reliable so far. I did cut it a bit fine once, when it took 45.01 litres to fill up!

Erm no, that's how I ended up with the diesel, the dig was mine but do too much mileage so hubby took it off me and then tried palming me off with a fiesta, as if, so I got a diesel Juke instead. Get to play with the dig at weekends

That's the one thing I didn't really consider when ordering the Nismo and wasn't really thinking straight as was excited by the pictures ,wild looks ,new image ,value for money and reasonable performance and enthuastic juke owners group

25/a 30-35 ??
Know idea really untill I get it
I get 23mpg woth my weekend Subaru
30 mpg with the everyday Accord
48 mpg with my impreza Deisel which is going px for the Nismo
Didn't really condsoder a Deisel as I only will do 11-12 k per year with the juke Nismo as my main criteria was a fun performance car at a sensible price and individuality

The Nismo has landed and I Love it
