    Guy I worked with complained to SAAB when he ran out of petrol on the motorway - his complaint was that it still indicated 23 miles in the tank. Twit.

    I just don't understand running so low when petrol stations are plentiful!

    It's not an issue for me personally.  But, Honda sure missed the mark on this "feature".

    Just show the miles to empty, why make it so complicated?  Honda is already calculating MPG.  Almost every vehicle on the road today shows how many miles to empty.

    There is no "reserve".  Show me the miles to empty, and start flashing a low fuel indicator when you get low.    :087:

    I allow 80km but that's conservative.   I only get 3.8l per 100km though.
