How many miles to a tank? Gen 4

What's the most anyone has been able to put into the tank? i.e. do we know that the tank really is 40 liters capacity? The most I've been able to put in is 33 liters

I managed 34.53 litres last night, with 287.6 miles on the ODO.

I feel it would have happily done 300 miles and been safe. But you are driving pretty blind.

It's a real shame really, Suzuki aren't the only culprit. But I see absolutely no use of the 'Range' estimate on the computer. Because as soon as you get down to really needing to use it (low fuel), the bloody thing stops working. Knowing the estimated range after I've filled up, is actually of little practical use.

It's all to pot lol. Range said 61, went to work and back (34 miles), range said 60 miles. Fuel gauge was on 2 bars, thought I'd fill up and only got 27.76 litres in.

Fuel gauges are for indication only. ;)

I just zero the A trip when I fill up, then top up every 150 miles (I know it will do 250, but £25 or so is affordable :) )

I'd rather have had a temperature gauge if I could only choose 1. ;)

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

Temp gauge is a waste off time. Just shows temp normal if a hose splits or hole in rad it jumps to over heat. you should check fluid levels regularly. Even with a small leak a temp gauge won't save you.

Must admit, were it not for the temp gauge on my '06 Jimny 2 weeks ago I wouldn't have realised the fan-belt had gone!

So, a temp gauge would be good on my new one, plus rain sensing wipers (I've seen a YouTube review and they have them in, so I'm annoyed that they were available), and that's probably about it. Oh, and a 6th gear.

Android Auto being crap isn't Suzuki's fault.

There is a temp sign on dash, blue when cold,goes out when warm, RED over heat. so no need for gauge. Auto wipers bad, dust /mud/sand on screen can fool sensor. Just chews up wiper blades.

Good point on the temp gauge, I'd forgotten bout that despite the fact it seems to stay blue for the first 10 minutes of a drive!

...still want those auto wipers though ;-)

Fill up every 150 miles. No thanks. Do way to many miles a week for that.

I’ve been quite impressed with the auto lights and the auto mainbeam. However every example of auto wipers I’ve used have been bloody awful to boarder line dangerous in some recent model Mercedes. Very glad the Jimny hasn’t got them.

I'm still wondering about the auto lights, as mine go off even driving under a motorway bridge for a nanosecond, then stay on for a good 10 seconds afterwards. Mind you I don't mind if the driver in front thinks I'm a c*ck - they haven't got a Jimny :-)

Chose your own mileage :) I like to always have a half tank, in case there is an emergency evacuation/invasion/warp core breach, or more likely a power cut and the fuel pumps won't work. ;)

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)
