They were amazed when they hit ten kilometers. Little did they know that was just the beginning. Australian comedy duo and radio hosts, Hamish Blake and Andy Lee, hit the road to find out how many kilometers Andy’s Audi SQ5 can drive after the car’s fuel gauge says it’s on empty.
The experiment isn’t exactly useful to a whole lot of people, as its results only apply to that vehicle in those conditions doing that particular drive cycle.
But still, many of us like to drive our cars as far as possible without pulling over to fuel up, and it’s usually that “range: 0 mi” indicator on the gauge cluster that guilts us into finally taking the exit. Now we know that at least one car is capable of covering nearly 70 miles after the range goes to zero, so maybe—just maybe—you don’t have to freak out when you spot the goose egg on your dash.
As they say, it was a peculiar experiment, but someone had to do it.
