    Yes, the computer is never correct. You must be low for it to say that. Near the bottom of the red? If your not low on fuel then there is a problem
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    The amount remaining can be adjusted, but you need access to Tech 2. I personally would leave iut unless its lots out as its better to have an inaccurate reading than run out of fuel.

    as far as I can tell my 1.9 is accurate. needle hits the top of the red bit (1/8 tank) and the light comes on, computer says 48 miles to go. by the time the needle is at the bottom of the guage and the light is flashing the computer says 10 miles to go. it then takes easily 55 litres to fill up. Im guessing the car has a 60 litre tank?

    The last few miles -as all of the miles really - will alter depending on your driving style at that moment in time. So you may get more or les then 10 miles out of it if it says 10 miles remaining.
