    Vehicle : Insignia Elite Nav

    Trim : Elite

    Year : 2012

    Mileage : 9k

    never had that on my elite it will display a petrol pump when i get really low but won't direct me to a petrol station

    just wondering would the sat nav need to be directing you somewhere for this to happen ?

    no it shows range and then you can either cancel the pop up or it will show you local stations and distance to them with the price per litre.





















    OK I was joking about the price per litre.

    the nav was taking me home at the time, so I guess it does need to be running! First time I've let the tank get that low though, so I don't know!


    Either way, I'm impressed!


    And the petrol station was open!!!

    Nope, Nav doesnt need to be running. You get the fuel warning, and as said you can cancell or select petrol station and choose from a list, starting from the closest.

    Its cool, I was like a kid in a toy shop when this happened, even had it direct me to a station that Ive been to, all my life !! lol

    I get to indulge in this luxury too

    But what beats me - is why does my car insist on finding a petrol station when filling it up with petrol will only balls up the diesel engine, huh?

    If it told me to 'refuel' or to find the nearest 'filling station' then that would make more sense. More of an issue with hire cars as a muppet could fill up a diesel car with petrol regardless of umpteen stickers all over the shop, just because the satnav 'told them to'!

    Bad day at the office so
