The Trial Begins

Must admit that I was quite tickled by Jack's comment.

ANYWAY, I conveyed the message of a polite decline this morning, and I was offered a great deal I just couldn't resist.

In my daily drive, the W126, I have now TWO (2) of the devices installed, and I need not have to pay until I am completely satisfied with the results. I also have their guarantee that nothing will happen to my engine.

So, I am going to start a journal at 118795 miles clocked in when fitted with FuelMax. Subsequent to that, I have also pumped a full tank and recorded all the details.

Since I am embarking on an independant study of this, I thought it better to make known here the pattern of fuel consumption.

Starting from this year's record:

3.1.2003
Odo. Reading 114441 miles
134 miles @ 24.318 litres
Average of 5.51 miles per litre

Simplified reading:

7.1.2003
114724
282 @ 58.724
4.8

11.1.2003
114973
249 @ 49.625
5.02

14.1.2003
115165
192 @ 41.351
4.64

18.1.2003
115478
313 @ 60.150
5.20

20.1.2003
115739
260 @ 51.881
5.01

23.1.2003
115968
229 @ 46.624
4.91

28.1.2003
116169
201 @ 43.618
4.61

30.1.2003
116405
235 @ 48.724
4.82

4.2.2003
116662
256 @ 52.838
4.84

8.2.2003
117010
347 @ 71.95
4.82

11.2.2003
117303
293 @ 60.150
4.87

13.2.2003
117560
256 @ 48.951
5.23

17.2.2003
117763
203 @ 41.359
4.91

19.2.2003
117968
204 @ 41.359
4.93

21.2.2003
118398
430 @ 78.197
5.5

5.3.2003
118802
152 @ 29.489
5.15

There would be a marginal error imputed in the computation of the average mileage depending on whether it is filled to the brim. For simplicity, I shall try to be as consistent from now on.

So - until the next fuel pump.
