    Default how big is the fuel reserve

    now not that i regulary drive around with the petrol light on...but would like to know how big the reserve is on the vectra.
    on my last car it would only ever do about 15 to 20 miles witth the light on before getting nervous.

    so how many miles before the car really is empty. 1.8 petrol. and for arguements sake lets say town driving.
    AND before anyone says - i do know you arent meant to drive around on the dregs and rubbish at the bottom of your tank!

    My car enters the RED zone on the gauge at between 30 and 50 miles left
    The warning light comes on when there are beween 5 and 2 litres left in the tank
    It then starts to flash when there are less than 2 litres in the tank

    Yes, the fuel gauge warning light

    It should also be noted that running out of fuel in a petrol is not as critical as it is in a diesel
    Owners of diesel Vectras should never really let the fuel gauge warning light come on, and if it does should fill as soon as possible
