Re: How low can you go?

Once the Fuel Low warning comes on in the indicator window (0 miles range), is there any more warning? Does an Amber light come on in the gauge for example? How low down the indicator will the needle go past the Red zone?

Last night I had driven only about 10 miles after the Low Fuel warning appeared, but didn't know how much I had left. I think I still had another 2+ gallons... (the £110 refill cost sorta rattled my brain).

Think I could've easily made it to my local Shell garage, much better diesel from shell (& BP), more power & MPG.

Is that 20.5 miles after warning, or 20.5 gallons on refill?

Re: How low can you go?

Good to know. I don't get a light coming on, just the "low fuel" warning in words. Sounds like we've got around 2 gallons after that.
