i have a 1 month old Kuga, the other the fuel guage needle was at quarter tank, the computer display showing 90 miles to empty, i touched the brake to slow down, instanly the fuel gauge needle fell to zero and comp display changed to 38 miles to empty and the display then showed fuel computer data error??
Has anyone had this problem? I contacted the dealer and they have tried to tell me that this in normal but it dosnt seem right to me!!

Its definately not normal, and suggests you have a sticky fuel sender. It may free up over time as the car is new, but I have not heard of this on a new motor. Common on old ones or accident damaged cars.

I had that on my focus, I drove over a transit bumper, and it stuffed the FSU, it resolved itself within a few months, but it irritated me till then!
On a new car though, you should get it looked at under warranty - shouldnt cost anything as its an "inherent fault"

Absolutely not normal - try a different dealer
