    Another question:

    When do you decide to fill up? Maybe the gauge on the Micra is more pessimistic than the Yaris. You might be putting in a smaller amount each time and so filling up more frequently.

    light comes on? we have a light? i always get nervous when the last 1/8th bar goes away and i've been driving a bit...usually 34-35 liter fills for me...I know we have a 41L tank, so i still have 6L left, plus lines, so i safe for another 80-100 km...but i can't bring myself to do it! hhahaha

    Well.. Not so much as a light per se. The last bar of fuel will blink at you and it gives you an estimate on how many km are left... Then it goes blank with --- and that flashes in the odometer.

    I know on older cars the fuel cooled the pump in the tank, running them super low on fuel wasn't good for them. Im not sure if that is still the case but either way, there is no harm in gettin nervous around 1/8th tank.

    I forget if the Micra beeps each time you start the car if that last bar is blinking. I think it might.

    I find the range really drops as I am driving by tens of kms. So when the number went to ---- I was really nervous. I typically fill at a quarter tank As my daily commute is 90km.

    I'm getting 5.9 L/100 km at the moment. Mainly highway driving (country back-roads) mixed with a bit of city driving. Manual transmission.

    Angry The gas game

    The fuel display started to flash and let me know I had 49km left. Then it went to underscores and flashing. I continued well past the 49km mark in northern Alberta with sweat dripping down my forehead cursing. WHY IN OIL COUNTRY WERE THERE NO GAS STATIONS??? It's one of those stories where the car sputtered out on me pulling into a Petro Can station somewhere. I figured I went about 65km on until I found the Petro Can. Took 41.228 Litres before the pump went "click". Whew! This only happened on April 17, 2016.

    I've always done extreme gas consumption calculations in a Hilroy booklet from the 80's and after a 3500 km trip the display shows I'm averaging 6.3L / 100km. My personal calculations show 7.2L / 100km. I love my Micra. Disappointed in the lies.
