    Default When does your fuel light come on??? (1.8vvt's)

    Attachment 51534

    Was just wondering when your fuel light comes on as the 'range' computer told me I have 0 miles but as you can see on my fuel gauge the light hasn't come up yet. I know it's got to be close but surely there should be a few miles on the range with that amount of fuel left?. It went from 19miles down to 0. I had been doing a lot of short stop start trips but the engine was warm.....

    I've started using the 'Gallons consumed' readout to determin how much fuel is left in the tank. My light comes on when i have about 3.5 gallons (about 17 litres) left. My range reads zero then i have about 1.5 gallons left. I've done a 50 mile journey on the 0 miles readout before and that's on a V6 CDTI. When i went to fill up i managed to squeeze 60 litres into the tank. Just 1 litre remaining.

    its a pain in the backside The thing is, although it shows as fuel in the tank, that bit of fuel in the red area, goes down rapidly! so the computer is just a bit premature. However, you need to find fuel quick, and its not a good idea to run it too dry anyway.
    In fact....all the fuel runs down too fast! pmsl

    The computer tells me to refuel more or less as it hits the red. The petrol light comes on when it starts going into the red, then starts flashing not too long after.
