Hello all,

I had my GEN3 for a month now and my gas reading is all over the place.
When I picked it up at the dealer, the reading was 830KM for a full tank.
I was able to get to that range once but I saw it as low as 730Km.
I tried to use the same gas station brand. I understand there is variation but it is odd for an 100Km difference about 62 miles.
I filled up so far 5 times and got different reading each times, between 730Km to 830Km.
Just curious if someone else notice this.
I don't drive it that much, I fill it when it reach about half the tank.

Thanks,

S

The range is based on your most recent rate of fuel consumption, so it will vary significantly, according to driving conditions.

Depends how hard you've been driving it, what the journey has been like (stop/start, flat/inclines......)

Averaging 27 mpg from my GTS on mixed runs with this 35.7 this morning with a couple of spirited overtakes included. Definitely improving as the car loosens up.

Here's mine after an A-road journey to Cornwall. Gen 2 GTS. Average speed was 53 mph.

Yes the average speed element is still waiting to be sorted out by Porsche AG. Along with send map to car, it no longer does, with the new worse App!

The app is appalling.

Apparently my car is currently parked 30 miles away from where I'm looking at it and is in need of an oil service!

Its two months old!!!
