    Default Low petrol light ?

    Usually on my Vec. the yellow low petrol light appears when the dash computer shows 20miles or less, but lately the light is coming on alot earlier, when the dash display is on 40 miles or less, only started happening a few days ago. Is this normal .. or some sort of electricial problem? Just curious.

    Depends how you are driving at the time the light is linked to the fuel gauge I believe and triggers at the top of the red segment and starts to flash at about 50% of that level, the trip computer can vary in what it shows, if you have the check functionality it will flash up with 30 miles of computed range.
