Thing is, the petrol/diesel isnt going anywhere other than the tank, so I wouldnt worryTopcat said:I had two courtesy cars and both did that, a Jazz and a Civic, the Civic I eneded up putting 4 x £5 in to try to make the needle move and it didnt, I think the computer had to be re-set.
In the petrol I've hit 0miles to go before and each time I've got exactly 45 litres in the tank, and I'm sure somebody mentioned that before that 0 is 5 litres left.TTDegs said:So from this completly un-scientific accidental experiment, I'm guessing that 15-20 miles after reading zero, you're running on fumes.
:shock:generationgav said:I've also driven about 25miles with it reading 0 and got to the petrol station fine.
First I was on the motorway and knew where the petrol station was I went too, but didn't know of any others and didn't want to go searching.Pottsy said:I'm a fill-up-with-a-bit-in-hand kind of person. At 20 miles I'm starting to twitch. Guess this comes from my work, where getting low on fuel is not really an option.
You're not trying hard enough! How about 51 litres of diesel to get the level to where I could see it in the filler neck?? :shock:TTDegs said:I got down to '7 miles to go' today after a run to Port Talbot.
Then squeezed 47 litres into the tank (as in gush gush gush, click, squeeze in some more, click, few more drops, click, dribble a bit more in.... no more will fit)
