    Default Fuel Problem. Please help

    Hello,


    Sorry not been on here for a loooonnggg time ! very busy,

    Just need some quick advise if you can please.

    I am work, and my vectra 2.0DTI, the fuel light is on, and i reckon in the next 5 miles it will start to flash.

    I live 30 miles away from home, and have no money with me (well 3 pounds lol)

    Just wondering what you think are my chances in getting back without adding any more deisal?

    or do you think i should use the 3 pounds wisely and put some in?

    i totally forgot to bring my wallet this morning, and kinda stuck now.

    thanks in advance

    yh thats right i think its 2 lr, which means at 1.22 at the moment would cost in the region of 2.50, so might just get away with it

    I don't what the roads are like i.e. stop start but I would think you could make it but is it worth the risk? I would put the £3 in, check under carpets in ash tray ect...you may find some more.

    I keep £20 hidden in the car as sometimes I put the shorts and leave the wallet in the jeans.

    ?Are you in AA or RAC or any other..if you are ring em tell them ran out of diesel..they carry a certain amount on there vehicles,,,they should put some in..enough to get you home ..either that or they will be lifting your car to get you home...if not stick the 3 quids worth in that should get you home anyway if you take it steady.
