What is that? you may ask. Well, that my friends, is a receipt from today’s stop at a gas station.
73.02 liters filled on my 9-5. The 9-5 normally only holds 70 liters. I dare say it was pretty close to empty at this point.
When I started this morning the SID estimated 190 km left to empty. I needed to go 217 km. So, did I cheat and average 80 all the way? Nope. Some 55-60 km before the gas station, the DTE said “40 km” and then gave up on me; “low fuel”.
I realized there were plenty of fumes left and persisted. I patted the steering wheel and said
no worries old friend, we will get there!.
What are your personal bests? How much fuel fits in various Saabs? Comments are open.
Kramer test driving a 900 back in the day:
Note: The NG 9-5 has improved the DTE-calculation. In my 9000 when the DTE reaches 0 km, there is still 10 liters in the fuel tank. Same with the 9-3 in my experience. Thus some caution is advisable when upgrading from previous models to the new 9-5.
