Based on observation not actual calculation, it has some semblance to
the mileage on the last tank but it is very optimistic. I've never
gotten the stated range.
From actual calculation, the real mpg is lower than that the trip
computer says I'm getting by at least 3 or 4 mpg. Not just Hyundai but
I've seen it on other brands.
My problem is that the "Range" after every refueling is always around
667 km. That would mean: 62L/(9,3L/100km) = 667 km
They seem to use a constant 9,3L/100km for calculations (30,3mpg)
My last trip (127km) the trip computer indicated: 6,9L/100km or
40,9mpg. (Cruise control 101-102 km/hour, no wind, freeway)
It does not use the actual average L/100km or MPG for calculations ???
My average is around 8,0L/100km or 35mpg. Range should be: 775km
Just wanted feedback from your experience.

There's all kinds of ways to do range calculations. What you don't want to
do is give the range estimate without some mileage in reserve - unless you'
re planning on running the tank dry. It's all a guess anyway. It would be b
est to give a conservative estimate of range. Using 30MPG rather than 40MPG
as a basis for calculations is the smarter, safer, move.
