    Default I have just run out of petrol......

    i have just got in the range said i had 11 miles left and i was only a couple of miles from a 24hour garage and the ****** thing concked out. That is the last time i let the petrol go that low on my misses astra . This should not happen to a new shape Astra , my Vec when the range goes to 0 miles will go at least another 20 miles(just).

    Thats part of the fun of havingthe range display, how low can you get it!!

    I have had mine down to 1 mile when i first got the car on my way to Garage for fuel.

    I don't let it go below about 25, & even then I'm a bit nervous!

    I drove across the peak district in my old 2.2 with the range showing 0 miles.

    On the other hand my 1.9cdti ran out on the M1 showing 9 miles range on the trip, had to get towed to the services (you need at least 25litres to get it going again, then the car went limp mode), won't be relying on the trip computer again

    I never let it run less than 30 miles range.

    For starters, I wont put anything in unless its BP Ultimate. So I always make sures the cars full before a long journey.

    Sorry to hear you ran out... not a pleasant experience. Neither is driving across the peak district on zero !!

    This is why I fill before the red on the fuel gauge, its too much hassle having none in, not to mention the embarrassment sitting at the side of the road.

    Not to worry Heath let the handbrake off and go to the rear of the car and push towards the establishment with the big Shell sign outside.

    p.s remember to put the heated rear window on, wouldn't want you getting cold hands would we
