    Did you fill it to the click or did you neck it? I always fill to the rim when filling up properly, that way you get a good 100 miles before the needle moves but you have to count the 3/4 as the half way, the 1/2 as 1/4 etc. I can get 400 miles from the top half (on the gauge) but just over 200 on bottom half although I have never had the light on!

    I never brim the tank to the neck as being a biker, diesel spilling from over filled fuel tanks is deadly. Remember Spills kill!!!!!!!!!!!!! I fill to the click then leave it. I get nearly 680 to a tank but mines only a 2.0 DTi and spends it time going up and down the A1 at 70mph.

    I'm a Scot, I would never EVER spill any! I just tickle the pump until its full. I must look like an idiot standing there for 10 minutes trying to squeeze in another half litre!!

    I get about 600-650 to the quarter but bottle it and fill it up again.

    I have just filled up today with VPower Deisel but the cost per litre was 114.9 which is stupid. I just managed to squeeze £44 in as it wasent empty. I think I will have to be dropping down to standard Shell deisel if the cost keeps jumping up like it is at the minute
