    Did you switch the engine off when you filled it, I filled mine the other day with the engine running (The wife was in it and I hoped someone might steal her) . The guage didn`t raise until I restarted the car, it was weird ...

    Also since I got a new set of clocks in, the 31 mile fuel warning comes on at 1/4 tank, annoying as well ....

    ok this is only what i heard and was lead to believe.
    did u try and squeeze as much as possible in - like up the neck and therefore the guage is sort of floating not sure where it`s at.
    heard of this once or twice - might not even apply to modern cars

    either that or the breather is blocked - thereby not allowing a full tank in?

    Just a note guys, its illegal to fill your car at the petrol station whilst the engine is running, and very dangerous!
