      if he filled as soon as the Fill Up message came up then he wont be sucking any cr4p up. when that message comes up there is still at least 20 miles of fuel remaining.

      Also if using super unleaded then theres less cr4p going in

        Ha cheers reidy I did indeed fill up as soon as I got home which was round the corner. How's the TT? They are lovely cars. Miss the VXR at all?

          I had that message come up in my old Corsa on my last lap of the Nurburgring 2 years ago. Funny thing is, I entered the track for a two lapper with just under half a tank showing on the fuel gauge. The Nurburgring is a thirsty place.

                  Wow some great stories here

                  @DavidVXR wow at using half a tank at the ring, that's a hellova lot of fuel! Must have been worth every penny though

                  @9017 I didn't know the display could tell you exactly how much fuel is left in the tank? Thought it could only tell you how much you have used or the milage left?

                  And Tom I would have never known the display could still go to "Urgent Fill Up" - so I must have had tons of fuel left hahaa now that must be worrying to see! And they must have been the stingiest dealers ever

                          It actually goes another warning level beyond that!! After it starts flashing "fill up" the petrol symbols start flashing also (both of them ) so you have 3 lots of flashing lights on ya dash lol
