Ask Your Own Australia Car Question

Hello there,

I've yet to hear of any late model vehicle of your type to only get 4km/litre.

Have you got records of this?

Can you tell me how you do this calculation?

Do you do a lot of stop/start traffic jams etc?

Are you going from vehicle display, the range will fluctuate as a calculation is done on current trip data, the range is recalculated periodically, and if the driving goes from traffic jam to highway (eg), then range will be a updated higher figure.

Hi,
Thanks for your reply. Though the information I got were the same as what my mechanic friends told me. -DanPs. Just wondering why I was billed $46 for one question. I was upset when I saw it in my online bank transaction. Please open attached file. I hope you can enlighten me on this matter. Thanks

Hi Dan,

That is how the system works, the question price is determined by your priority criteria.

I get a percentage of the total, when you give positive feedback via the rating of 3 or more stars.
