being the lucky owner of a new Mini Cooper S, I am somewhat intrigued about
the "real" capacity of the fuel tank. The owner's manual speaks of ca. 50
litres, but when I filled it up last time, I had already 49 litres, while
the fuel gauge stood at about 1/8 (in fact the warning light went just on).
So the question from the newbie is: how far can you seriously go without the
risk of running empty or to damage the catalysor?
Its huge. 50 litres, compared to the original which had just half that, the
turning circle is huge too, 10.6 meters compared to 8.6 meters of the
owner of a classic 30 year old rust free 10 foot long mini cooper,
WTF? He asked a valid question, in the appropriate group, and gets an
answer from an Asshole.
The tank is 50l, 13.2 Gal in the US. Officially.
However I have put as much as 13.812 gallons in, with the on-board
computer still showing 12 miles till empty.
