Hi Colourgt54, you normally get at least 30 Miles, but could suck up a bit of crap from the tank!!

Hi again the reason I asked about Reserve is due to having running problems I was told to use Cat Cleaner this should cure the intermittant problem I have but can only use the cat cleaner in 15 lts of petrol, so quite rightly I do not want to suck all the crud off the bottom.

Best Regards
Dave

Tried and tested by my wife.She has done 35 miles before it starts to splutter.I would calculate this to about 5 litres of fuel.Not a recommended practice.Cheers John

If you are towing I would aim at about 20 MPG.

Blackcloud900 Hi John would change fuel filter after concluding that.

Hi John,
thanks for the info it is useful, once I have put the cat cleaner in and run it I wont let it get low again, although typical Kia the tank seam is rotten and I have been losing fuel since I got it.

Best Regards

Dave

Hi blackcloud900 cannot reply to your message re hubs hence got you on this. Talked with a 4x4 mechanic mainly landovers but all sorts. He said failure on auto hubs very rare. Did a quick drive and all felt ok but will test again soon. He said to test it once in a while as it helps to keep them working. So now I don't know what to do? Why take off good hubs but sods law the first flake of snow and they won't work.
could you let me know where you got yours from please and also are you based in the Uk or the USA.
Cheers Gavin
