The amount of fuel in my Land Rover depends entirely on which type of corner I'm taking - left and it's empty, right and it's full.

British engineering at it's finest.

My car works the opposite way. "empty" on the gauge means half a tank. For the longest time I thought i just had the ********* gas mileage.

That's because of the technology used to measure how much gas you have in the tank.
It's a ball that floats connected to a stick.
When the tank is empty, the ball with be on the bottom, but once you fill it it gas it begins to float.
However once the ball reaches the top, it'll stop raising while you can still add more gas.
This leads to the ball now being in the gas than floating on it.
So when it empties out, you car will tell you it's still completely full even though your gas has just used up that space that drowns the ball.
Then the ball begins to lower and you're like "Dafuq?
Then the ball touches the bottom and you just ran out of gas.

Don't completely fill up your tank. When you completely fill it, it causes the car to weigh more and you use more petrol carrying a full tank around. Fill the tank to 3/4 full and you'll get more miles to the gallon.

In my 05 Tuscon LX a full tank lasts a week. The first half of the tank lasts 6 days and then the last half is magically sucked up on the last day.

Its cause the tank reads as full longer than any other level. Cause when you fill it up, you fill up past the sensor, which is in the tank, while the gas goes all the way up to the nozzle.

Just keep it in the upper half then ;-)

The float in the tank gets pressed against the top of its housing when the tank is fairly full. Because of that my car's fuel gauge doesn't move for the first 100 km. Thats why the first bit takes forever

tell your gay lover to come visit you instead whenever you need a refill
