These EV cars make me want to weep. REALLY want one for my next car but don't think the Used market will be at the right budget for me for a car with sufficient distance.
70+ miles a day for commuting, 20,000 miles a year..

My current car, is an idiot and £20 will get me to the next fuel station.. Then back to the garage for more repairs....

I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car I love my car I hate my car

Anyone use the fuely app? If so, how do you get the app to display mpg correctly or is this the right way? Looks odd to me.
I do. At a guess you’ve entered the information incorrectly or you don’t have enough data entered yet or, when you fill up you’re not brimming the tank every time.

You've got to brim it every time, or click the 'partial fuel up' button - but if you choose 'partial' then you don't get a true MPG until you do brim it. If memory serves me correctly, there is a setting somewhere that allows you to choose UK rather than US mpg.

I only ever fill to the brim when I fuel up. I'm going to assume I'm entering the data wrong?

As above

Last night's fill up 121.9 per litre.... 57.50 in

Shouldn’t volume be in litres?

I assume that is the android version? My iphone app looks different.

Totally depends on the motorway I can get to Scotland and back on a tank for £65 total 680 miles. Around town when cold a lot less. I have BMW 320D and therefore £20 gives you around 200miles

You would think so. Half a litre costing over £50 and doing hundreds of miles to the next fill will likely give the thousands of miles per gallon results I thought I saw in the other screenshot.

With the lotus, the question would be 'how many miles until the next garage visit' :D

The reality the reliability of a modern lotus given its still hand built is not too bad no worse than Ferrari or Lambo but without the huge upkeep costs.
My main problems with my ownership time as been linked to not driving the car to its full capabilities as it’s weekend or occasional school run
I need to track it a few times a year but I don’t have bravery or capability !

So regarding the partial fill up option? When would you select that? Last night I filled up with around 16 miles left in the tank according to computer thing.
You select that when you don’t fill the tank.

I could do 7mpg or 50mpg depending on how I drive :laugh: but on average £20 will do about 150 miles..

Same engine size and cylinders , the R8 has more bhp, my s8 only has around 450bhp

Mainly town driving for me (yes, I know, odd choice of engine for what is only a 15mi commute but I'm quite happy with the 32.4 average it gets ;)):

My last fill was £1.219p/L diesel so £20 would be about 16.4L = 3.61gal which would get me about 117 miles
