As I am now getting over 650 miles a tank (before I was on 450 max)
I had gotten to within 11 km of the magical 1000 km (621.5 miles) before joining EM, but my current tank is going to be well over 1000km - the remaining distance keeps hinting at a total of 1100 to 1200 km !

OK, it's always reading a bit too optimistic, just like the tank average indication of 4.5 L/100km (52.3 mpg US / 62.8 mpg UK), but still ...

Even engine-on coasting is greatly adding to my overall FE.
I was reluctant to try it, but I'm really surprised at how far this cage will coast - I've had to constantly increase the starting distance, because I still had to (engine) brake !

It's very tempting to do a full fill-up and register a record tank rather than do a partial fill-up to keep the car's weight down.

my calibrating tank is taking much much longer than I thought it would
Why not use a few "early fill-ups" to calibrate it quicker, then fine-tune with a few full tanks ?

Quote:
a tank costs about 3/4 the price of an SG2 at the moment and I have 200 miles to go
Yeah, diesel prices in the UK are really horrendous !
In my fuel log I can pick out my fuelings in the UK just by looking at the price

Using less fuel is always a win, no matter what you use the savings for
