    It happens if you still have the car on or with ignition on, when you refuel.

    keys out, then it wont happen.

    Happened to me, and I never leave the keys in the ignition when I refuel. It would be goodbye Veccy around here.

    I haven't got the trip computer but I am a student so it always gets £10 worth here and there! The feul light is pretty much perminantly on becasue it doesn't seem enough to register. If I put half a tank in it goes.
