Only 500 km on a full tank of fuel?

Hello folks, a very new FFE owner here. Loving the car so far.

 

However one thing that is bugging me so far is despite the car being delivered with a full tank from the dealer (as stated on both the sales list & on the car's fuel gauge), the car & MyFord Mobile is only reporting 500km on the range in hybrid mode. Ford Canada official literature lists the range at 982km, and even if I subtract the ~35 km EV only range and even take 20% off it for conservative sake which stands at ~750km, that 500 km hybrid operating range seems incredibly low.

 

Is there a way to make the car recalculate this range or is my car's GoM seriously out of whack?

Fill the tank up with premium and see what happens, maybe the tank wasn't filled up on level ground. :headscratch:

If this is a truly new car, the computer has nothing to in history to estimate what your tank will deliver.  It uses past performance as a gauge to estimate future results.  Give it a tank or two to get things right.  If someone test drove yours, or the few Ford 'break-in' km were done aggressively the computer estimate will be off.

On a trip I always was around 600 miles or more. The range estimate should become more accurate in time.

I had 40,000 miles when I returned the leased fusion Energi 2 weeks ago. Great car! (I now have a Tesla Model 3).
