Is there any problems with fuel gauge/milage display?
My diesel was showing 10 miles before it was empty when i came home last night, i went to the garage this morning (which is less than a mile away from my home)and stuck a tenner in it (measly 7 litres).
When i got back in the car and started it the gauge and the computer didnt move and wont reset.
Came home and the trip computer is showing 7 miles to go.Nipped back to the garage in wifes car and filled a can.
Its now had 12 litres in it and wont reset.
Anybody any ideas????:confused::confused::confused::confused:

Think you need to add at least 10 litres at once for it to reset?

This is because fuel tank iz under driver seat and pipes for petrol are very long from fuel cap to tank and for thet you need 10l minimum.
