Re: looking at buying a 2008 CRD

Buy it! You'll be amazed how fast the beast accelerates :-)

Think of the saving in buying spark plugs alone :-) So much torque!

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.

Re: How low can you go?

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