Hi there.

Just purchased my 03 Focus Ghia 2.0. Have had it since Saturday and bought it with a full tank of petrol.

Earlier today i noticed a beep when turning the key in the ignition and also the remaining petrol/miles amount was flashing.

It was showing 47 miles left so popped a tenners worth in but it doesn't appear to have changed.

Does anyone have any ideas - a) what the beep is? b)how long does it take for the display to change and show the actual amount of petrol in there


Cheers

is the fuel gauge showing the correct amount if so its likely the sensor

The gauge is showing correctly and the sensor was working when i picked it up as it has been gradually been decreasing!

may have just got stuck see if it changes in the next few days

Popped out a while ago and it looks like its gradually going up. Will keep you updated, cheers for the advice

nowadays a tenner doesn't get that much fuel, i've seen it a good few times that it barely registers when you put it in. Sometimes it readjusts after a while, others it doesn't.

Its been 8 months since i did anything less than fill it though and petrol has only gone up, so you'd get even less than i would have.
