Latest fill up I got it down so it just turned to one bar "1/8", showing 60 miles to empty. It took 15.257 USG, so 1.6 USG (10%) left. The warning came on at about 70 miles to empty, well before the change to one bar.

This time I kept driving. At 40 miles to empty it gave another warning chime and the "1/8" bar and the "E" lit up red. It took 15.893 USG, so 1.0 USG (6%) left. So there are two levels of warning: Yellow and Red! I like it.

Mine reports 40 miles to empty at 1/4 tank on the gauge when the light comes on, and takes 15.3 gallons on average to fill up from there.

will report back what the dealer says when I go there

Miles to empty will vary depending on the mpg you are getting at that moment. I was getting 24 mpg each of the past two fill ups. If your current mpg was lower, the distance to empty will be lower. Try driving until the gauge shows 1/8 next time, and then the subsequent time, drive until the red light comes on. My guess is you will not run out, but the fill up gallons may be different from my Stelvio. Don't try this unless you know where the gas stations are!

This time I drove a bit further. About ten miles past the second warning chime with the "1/8" bar and the "E" lit up red and showing 32 DTE, it took 16.046 USG (0.8 USG (5%) left). So maybe another ten miles before the pump gulps air.

What drive mode are people using for the highway? According to Alfa, the Advanced Efficiency drive mode enables the cylinder deactivation, curious as to what milage difference that gives.

Cylinder deactivation is only on the V-6, not the I-4.

I'm on my second fill-up with ~800 miles on the odometer. I'm averaging 20-21mpg on the trip computer on mostly highway driving. How come the Stelvio eats as much gas as my 3.6 V6 Macan Turbo I just replaced?

26.5 in mixed driving, 93 octane. I am a conservative driver mostly in A mode. I totally love how Stella purrs in regular driving but roars when you want her to. We are bonding well as the miles accumulate (3600), brakes wear in, ride relaxes a bit, and engine settles in.

That would make sense but Alfa actually shows it under the i4 engine specs:


DYNAMIC delivers sharper throttle, brake and steering-wheel response for sporty on-road driving and a throatier exhaust note

NATURAL is a comfort setting for a perfect balance in daily driving

ADVANCED EFFICIENCY enables the cylinder deactivation to maximize energy savings and dynamic efficiency



But I just noticed that the exhaust note does not change on the i4 engine in Dynamic so you must be correct.
