What is a Kilotank ?

1K miles or 1K Kilometres.

I feel a success coming on... :D

That depends, are you talking a metric kilotank or a US kilotank? :p :p

I would say that it depends on your longest tank and native units ;) In every case, as soon as you hit the kilo-kilometer, your goal is the kilo-miles :turtle:

I reached 1825km (1134mi) lately, so my next goal is 2000km (1243mi).

Now some people have 45L (11.8 USgal) tanks, while others (as I do :o) have 60L (15.9 USgal)...

While a kilo-miles with a 45L tank is 2.797L/100 (84.75USMPG), a kilo-kilometer with a 60L tank is 6L/100 (39.2USMPG).

POE (Pourcentage Over EPA, whoever is your "EPA") is a little bit more fair. I scored over +100% :cool: but traffic and warm weather are back :(

Have fun at improving your PB,

Denis.

You are so 2D - there are 2 non-metric measurements....:turtle: I only use the measurements of her majesty. If you choose to use lesser Colonial measurements then, well, thats you...:D

Just wondered as I approach 650 miles which is over 1000 km (621 miles is 1000km). Can I claim a success ? It is to me.

As I said, I soon as you beat a record, you can beat another one... after a while you get that :

New World Record Challenge: over 50km/L(117mpg) tank - PriusChat Forums

 MFD display FE: 50.2km/L (118.1mpg or 1.99L/100km) distance: 3040.1km (1889.4miles) fuel refill: 60.16L (15.89 US gallons) calculated FE: 50.53km/L (118.9mpg or 1.98L/100km)
Have fun,

As a lowly subject of your majesty, you certainly can not claim succes by using such alien measurements as the kilometre ! The horror !

Good work though :thumbup:

But I still got 65.3 mpg out of my sister's Fabia 1.4D without really trying :D
(That's 78.5 mpg UK ! )

Hehe :)

That is good.

But this is a BMW 330D eating VRS...

We shall see. I have loads of miles left in this tank yet. :thumbup:

One aspect of Ecodriving is the tank range. Previously I would fill up twice a month. At my current rate my fuel may 'go off' before I use it all.

Oh MAN.

Now I want to do a metric kilotank. My biggest tank so far has been exactly 600 miles and that was absolutely pushing it. Can I squeeze another 20 miles out of that?!

what is a kilotank?

Good question, i have two answers..
A) bloody good work in your pd130 rocketship!

B) impossible in my scab turdbo-i'd need 48+UK mpg..

Next goal is 700 for you!
