    The petrol light on my 2.0T first comes on with about 30 miles showing on the range - I'd expect yours is around the same.

    Thanks for the link, now im even more confused!! lol

    I only live about 25 miles from home, the problem comes when i have to do jobs on the way home or throughout the day, most days can be 100+ miles of driving.

    Gonna tell the boss its straight home for me tonight and no extras on the way. light just came on when i got to the car park so i should be fine, didnt know the gauge flashed at you, take it this is when you seriously need to get some juice??

    Very funyy fellie!!lol, still waiting for the first time my other half forgets its a deisel too and puts the wrong juice in!!!!

    Err - yes!! If it's gone from being lit to flashing then you want to be finding a petrol station before you go home. I doubt if it will make 25 miles. You don't want to be running out of fuel in a diesel - you'll have the ar*eache of having to reprime the fuel system once you've got fuel back in it. If you're lucky it can be done with a good bit of cranking of the engine, otherwise it's a bit of a job!

    Is there not a petrol station anywhere near your work?

    If the fuel light is only lit (not flashing) and you have 25 miles to travel you should be fine matey. No grand prix starts from the lights for you though.
