    Never rely on what the trip computer says.

    IF you do short journeys it will lie. It only settles down and gives a half way accurate reading after you've done a 15 to 20 mile journey (and I don't mean just pottering around town).

    I take it the fuel light comes on as a check light when you first turn the key?
    Note, with earlier Vec-C's this didn't happen, but I see from your profile you've got a facelift so you should have a check light.

    i have a 2 stage low warning light, it comes on, then soon after starts flashing lol, it would be nice to know exactly how much petrol is left when it flashes, at this point (flashing) i never trust the range reading.

    Mine is the same. Probably all like that.

    When mine started flashing the range was already at zero. 10 miles later and I was sweating and then relieved to finally find a garage that was a 24 hour one. It was 3am at the time. I don't think I would have gone much further. Tank must have really been empty as I put 14 gallons in. Considering the tank is approx 13.4 gallons, the rest must have been in the tank delivery tube.

    But did they have any diesel, seeing as it was a petrol station
