    Default Range

    3 weeks ago I filled up when the range and fuel pump came on and at 45 litres it was brimming..strange I thought.....anyway the range has got to 28 now and the fuel pump light on the computer screen has come on again yet the fuel consumption shows ive only used 9 gallons.Of course I filled up and again ive roughly 4 gallons left.Ive tried resetting the range only but it goes back to 28 miles..my average consumption shows 37 mpg.anybody else have this problem or is it a fault I can cure.Im not expecting it to be down to the last 10 miles or anything but 130 miles is a bit much.

    Hi

    yep but that means (even tho its a v6 cdti as opposed to your v6 3.2) 48 miles more to the tank.Im sure i read somewhere that something in the computer can be re-calibrated if you take the car (filled to the brim obviously) to Vauxhall under warranty.Can anyone clarify please? Like i say i know its not going to be spot on but id expect it not to be at least 80? (upon re-calculaton) miles out.
    On the actual fuel gauge i noticed it (the needle) hadnt just quite reached the start of the red section.....this does work out at around 10 L left..which works out perfectly to what i put in.
    Sorry if im going on a bit but i want any problems with my car sorted before the warranty runs out. im even thinking of asking Vauxhall to replace the rear ashtray cos it doesnt shut quite right
