  • Fuel light?

    Just outta interest roughly how far should i be able to go (driving sensibly) after the fuel warning light comes on??

    'Cus i really can't figure it out, was driving home this evening and managed about 15 miles with the red light on before a message popped up on the BC saying i needed to refuel and it blanked the range estimate. Thing is just before it did this it was tellin me i was good for another 15 miles and that tied up with the amount of fuel i think i had left based on the amount the BC said i'd used.

    Depends how you've been driving it and how you intend to drive it... hard to give a precise answer tbh.

          Not a good idea to let it run till almost empty....
          Put it like this " How upset do you get when you run out of lager?"

                  I know my astras BC aint accurate at all!! .... but when I fuel Jags at work, when they always have 0 range on them and go for at least another 15-20 after that. But not bthe VXR
