Hi Guys, i have a question with average range when C-HR is in full tank.
i just bought C-HR last week, and today was my first time putting a full tank on this car.

and the average range that the display indicated was 250miles....

it is advertised in US as 27MPG in City and 31MPG in HWY. and C-HR has 13.2 gas tank.

today, i put full tank equivalent of 11.5 gallons.

by calculating them as 27 or 26 MPG.. i should be getting range of roughly around 310 Miles.. but it was a little strange to see 250 miles as range in full tank..

do i need to reset something to refresh up the range scale?

does anybody has the same issue ? or any thoughts would be very much appreciate it!

13.2 gas tank is including the reserve. When your empy light is lit and the range is zero there will be at least 2gallon of fuel left in the tank.
All Toyota´s i have and have owned had a fuel light that came up very soon.

Its maybe a Japanese thing... so you never run fully out of fuel.

Hi TubeMan and dutCH-R,

thank you so much for your input.

I did not realize about the reserve of 2 gallons.

I will continually monitor and see once the car gets used to my driving, the ave. range may change.

thanks!

Thumbmania82, I just did a long trip with my daughter this past weekend. In ECO mode on city, highway and interstate driving with snow and below freezing temps I got 325 miles at the fuel light coming on. We did get stopped due to a wreck for 30 minutes of engine idle time during this fuel run.

I never try to drain the gas tank but hum it's never a bad idea to start tracking :)

Hi Mersh75, thank you for your input. I should try your method too. put C-HR in ECO mode and do a long trip to see how much full tank gives me.

Something is very strange with the average MPG and distance to empty on the display. I'm thinking Toyota is not very truthful about either of the two numbers. The lowest I ever see at the end of a trip is 27.5 mpg average. Yet the distance to empty after fill up never exceeds 260 miles! Just by simply calculating 10 gallon capacity without additional reserve the range should be 275 miles. Only way this could make sense is if the tank was 10 gallons including reserve but it's not! Just filled up with 11.4 gallons last night. I still had gas in the tank and fuel light was not on. So according to the display I should have seen something like 313.5 distance to empty. Clearly our vehicles are not getting the advertised millage, not even the one that is projected on the display.

Most of the time we never see the advertised mileage for one reason or another. Maybe Toyota tested the C-HR in perfect conditions to get those fuel economy numbers.
That's unfortunately the way it is for car manufacturers, not just Toyota.

Yes, but in the case of C-HR the display contradicts itself. It keeps telling you what you are averaging as you go and then shows distance to empty that does not mach previous number, all at the same time. And the distance to empty is MUCH less than displayed average. I have owned many Toyota vehicles in the past, currently own 3 and this only happens on the C-HR! One other point, every Toyota I have owned, including C-HR, when the distance to empty reaches zero, you are literally riding on reserve. This tells me the distance to empty is more accurate than the inaccurate/funny average number being displayed. Maybe it's the new conman core math?

I think something may be wonky with the mpg numbers on display.

Per the C-HR onboard stats I am a little over 30 MPG, but real world stats using "fuelly" to keep track it is not as high currently 25.6 MPG . For some reason the onboard stats are always higher, it was the same on my previous car.
So you may be getting less than 27.5 mpg average.

The range changes. Its not a fixed number. If your cruising on the highway and using les gas your range increases. If your driving around town using more gas than average your range decreases. I do 400km to a tank at 9.9 L/100 that is untill the gas light turns on.

I have same problem. Your chr has a 13.2 gallon tank. Therefore, when you filled it your chr had 13.2 gallons at 30 mpg your range should display 396 miles. All chr’s have 13.2 gallon tanks. I am averaging 30.7 mpg so my fuel range should display right at 409 miles, however it only displays a range of 252 miles. Toyota claims this is correct. Took to dealership they said computer works perfectly.....so if it works perfectly displaying average mpg of 30.7 then simple math tells me and should tell Toyota my range should display approx 403 miles. However, Toyota claims my range is correct. They are genuine dumb asses. Jim. Mineola, Texas
