    Probably best not to let it get that low mate, it can result in the best case the diesel filter getting blocked with crap and in the worst case water may get dragged into the engine

    It's quite easy to recreate

    Take the car from 28 to 7 litres at low mpg (range 90 miles)
    Take the car from 7 litres (range 20 miles) at a steady 60mpg
    The computer assumes the consumption was unchanged so effectively runs out at 5 litres and shows 0 miles

    With 5 litres and at a steady 60mph I can get 30 miles
