    Its either i wiring issue or i believe the CIM controls the dash cluster. Could be the CIM going wonky.

    ================================================== ======

    On mine , when i fill up ...

    the needle floats to the right spot and the computer petrol pump picture reminder goes out ...

    but it takes a few moments / minutes for the computer fuel range numbers to adjust from say .... 18 miles range left to the 189 miles range of fuel , i have just filled it up with .....

    it always does adjust within 1-7 miles , but like above said , a bit annoying , maybe i'm impatient ...

    Does the fuel need sloshed about to hit all the sensors fully ?

    Could be an excuse to go around corners on two wheels !!! L.O.L.

    I am a respectable father of 2 young ones ...

    the only time i speed around corners on two wheels ,

    is on my own private race track i have at attached to the back of my end link terrace house .. ..

    P.S.

    it's amazing what you can fit between a shed and the wendy house .

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Talking of tyres , in my daughters school yard there's a garden / plant trough area which is cordoned off by half sunk tyres in the grass and out of the dozen or so tyres there some with brand new unused tread ....

    Hmmm got me thinking ...
