    Default Do you take notice of the 30 miles left message?

    Wow, that was a long title.

    So far we have been filling up the Sig when it says theres 30 miles left, but considering that I left Tamworth yesterday with 75 miles left, and got back home with it saying I've got 50 miles left (after a 66 mile journey), just how accurate is the warning message?

    Is there a regular fuel light on the Sig/Vec??

    When I did fill up yesterday the instant MPG said there was 25 miles left to go, yet I only needed 45litres to fill the car up!

    I'd rely more on the actual petrol gauge itself. My BC often goes down to 0 miles, but the needle is still in the red and the light not flashing!

    I always fill mine up when it gets to half full as it seems to go down quicker when it gets past half for some reason (maybe its just me )

    The range is a projected mileage at your current driving style. Cane the car and watch it drop like a stone.

    I always rely on the actual fuel gauge rather then the range on the computer.

    Ah ha!

    Thanks for the replies. TBH I wasn't sure whether there was a petrol light or not and didn't want to risk running out of diesel as the O/H would go nuts!

    How many miles have people done with the fuel light on? All my other cars (MG, Hyundai Coupe) did about 30.

    Just remember, for some mere mortals (like me) we don't get a choice, as we do not have fancy computers telling us, we can only rely on the gauge!!!

    I fill up when the fuel light comes on...living 5 miles from the nearest garage makes you think twice about playing the flashing fuel light game

    Until today I didn't know there was an alternative to the computer on mine!
