Hi Guys,
Just purchased a 2012 1.1 Rio 2. Very impressed so far, feels like a well made car and very comfy to drive.
Couple of questions: -
How accurate is the “Miles remaining in tank” display
And, does the air con only work when the temp control knob is set in the coldest position?

Many thanks.

The miles remaining in tank will probably be calculated from 2 things. Average fuel consumption since the average was last reset. And volume remaining in the tank. Minus a safety margin.
The safety margin may be a EU standard, probably 5 liters.
  • So the miles remaining Are only as accurate as the average consumption. If you are in stop/start traffic miles remaining may be optimistic, while on a long country road it may be pessimistic.
