i'm new civic owner, 1.8 (08 model on 09 plate). anyone else notice if you fill only 5 or so litres when the gauge is just above red (computer showing about 22 miles remaining), that it doesnt shift the gauge at all or alter the miles remaing??

Yes, the civic's fuel tank is wide and flat. Filling up with 5 litres is just not enough for the floater in the tank to detect the change. A minimum of 10 litres should make the needle move.
