      fuel range

      I see the V60 cc only has a 14.5 gal tank,
      what type of range are you getting per tank? Long trips, In Town Etc.
      only 2020 V60 CC please.

      Thanks

      For highway the V60CC unless you drive with a lead foot or at 90mph sustained should get generally between 27 and 33mpg. So 390 to 480 miles theoretically. Add in a little mixed and should be fair to expect generally 330 to 380 miles per tank depending on your type of driving or more if pure highway.

      Thanks for the reply,
      I live in Hellpaso Texas and travel to Fort Worth Tx every third weekend.. Speed limits are 75-80 So I cruise around 82-88 MPH most of the time to save on tickets
      and to drive past the 350 miles of nothing..

      Gotcha, *theoretically* you should make that on one tank but I could see those speeds with a headwind tanking mpg and cutting it close. Plan on likely filling up once on the drive to be safe.

      Thanks.. The whole drive is 580 or so miles.. the first 350 is nothing but brown landscape with a small town here and there..

      Ahhh gotcha, well yeah, one fill-up somewhere in the middle and you're just fine on that.

      My data for a long trip is from Jan (pre lockdown) and it was 33mpg at 75mph on highways. I bet it is a little better now as it is “a lot warmer.”

      So, based on the data above and everyone's experiences, at what speed - during highway driving (i.e., steady speed) does the turbo kick in, and therefore kill your MPG. I'm used to interstate cruising at ~75 or so with my previous car and wondering if that will be fast enough to kick in the turbo.

      You're thinking about it wrong. Turbos have a wastegate controlled by computer. It's a little flapper valve, when it's open exhaust bypasses the turbo, it's not making any boost. It's open until you command the power with your right foot, then the electronics close the wastegate and the turbo starts boosting. Over-simplified but that's the basics of how it works.

      Higher speeds kill the mileage because aerodynamic drag increases exponentially as you go faster. But going 20mph everywhere doesn't work out either. Now every car is different, gearing and peak engine efficiency vs aero properties of the body and all that so it would be hard to figure the ideal speed. But as a general rule of thumb, any car is going to get better mileage at 55-60 mph than it will at any speed higher than that. So you can experiment with your own results and decide for yourself where you personally fall on the "going fast" vs "saving fuel" continuum ;-)

      Ok, thanks. I guess I’ll take the car on some trips and see where the sweet spot is.
