    Default dti idle

    Tonight I was sat at some traffic lights and the car started to idle rough it was 4c out side temp and my range was 12 miles left in diesel, and car had only been running for about 1 min . Filled diesel up and seems ok, wondered if the dti's idle rough when the diesel is below are certain level , or is it down to cold weather

    probably didn't like being so low on fuel , I normally keep mine as full as possible & never ever let it below 3rd of a tank .
    running low on fuel is not good for them & the fuel pump can die quickly through lack of fuel .

    no way would I even consider running one that low , not worth the hassle of bleeding it back up if it conks out .

    Granted its not something I would recomend. It was out og my control at the time my car had been away for a while. I went to pick it up and it had zero miles showing. I was fuming with the people who had it. They put some diesel in it for me. There was no problems caused though.

    as we all know no 2 cars are the same , so its quite possible yours might have had more in the tank showing 0 miles than the OP's car showing 12 miles

    I never had a prob with the car before like you say I've had mine down to 0 miles and never had a prob that's why I'm thinking its down to little fuel in the tank and the cold weather, what temp does it have to be before waxing starts

    I had once mine so low I feared not being able to reach the station, and yes, the engine was beginning to be rough. Back to normal as soon as I filled up the tank.

    I usually don't fill more than twice a month and range displays generally about 15 km, which is actually less than 12 miles and he engine never got rough with "so much" fuel left...

    Been running like that for 9 1/2 years. Never got the least problem with the engine itself or fuel feed. Most reliable car I ever had. Never ever had to be towed, whatever happened (dead clutch, still able to drive to the garage with the pedal to the floor ; broken crankcase pulley, engine still cooled by the twin fans sucking out the battery while (slowly ^^) rushing to the garage ; turbo with caked vanes and seized axle - could wait for the new turbo to come from UK). Would buy the same car if I had to do it again.
