Kia Sportage: Fuel and Refueling / Fuel Consumption

Lincoln Corsair Owners Manual / Fuel and Refueling / Fuel Consumption

Advertised Capacity

The advertised capacity is the maximum amount of fuel that you can add to the fuel tank when the fuel gauge indicates empty.

In addition, the fuel tank contains an empty reserve. The empty reserve is an unspecified amount of fuel that remains in the fuel tank when the fuel gauge indicates empty.

Note: When refueling your vehicle after the fuel gauge indicates empty, you might not be able to refuel the full amount of the advertised capacity due to the empty reserve still present in the fuel tank.

Filling the Fuel Tank

For consistent results when refueling:

Results are most accurate when the filling method is consistent.

Calculating Fuel Economy

Your vehicle calculates fuel economy figures through the trip computer average fuel function.

The first 1,000 mi (1,500 km) of driving is the break-in period of the engine. A more accurate measurement is obtained after 2,000 mi (3,000 km).

  1. Completely fill the fuel tank and record the initial odometer reading.
  2. Each time you fill the fuel tank, record the amount of fuel added.
  3. After at least three fill ups, fill the fuel tank and record the current odometer reading.
  4. Subtract your initial odometer reading from the current odometer reading.

To calculate L/100 km (liters per 100 kilometers) fuel consumption, multiply the liters used by 100, then divide by kilometers traveled. To calculate MPG (miles per gallon) fuel consumption, divide miles traveled by gallons used.

Keep a record for at least one month and record the type of driving, for example city or highway. This provides an accurate estimate of your vehicle’s fuel economy under current driving conditions. Keeping records during summer and winter shows how temperature impacts fuel economy.
