2009 BMW 7 Series Long Term Road Test

2009 BMW 750i: 20 Miles Plus on Zero Range

November 09, 2009


This weekend I learned three more things about our long-term 2009 BMW 750i.

First I learned that its fuel range read out will click all the way down to "Range 1 miles". Then I learned that if you keep driving it will count down to zero. But instead of "Range 0 miles" the readout changes to "Range ---- miles" (pictured above).

And the third thing I learned is that if you're really stupid and really stubborn you can continue to drive the car at least 20 miles in the city beyond that zero range mark.

You haven't lived until you've entered a crowded drive-thru line 15 miles into driving with zero range. That, my friends, is a rush.
