I have a focus 1.8 tddi , y plate

quick question please guys

in light of the current mass hysteria regarding fuel in the uk i just wanted to know where on the gauge will it go as a maximum before it runs out , i've never let it go beyond the line near the empty sign, but will it go right down to the empty e sign before it runs out?

on the odometer trick test fuel volume (option 10) it currently says F0027 followed by L003

Basically, where and when will it run out of diesel on the gauge?


Can't get diesel for love nor money in my area at the minute :-( and i'm currently below the line

Usually once you get to the line then you would have maybe 30 to 40 miles left.
Has the fuel warning light come on yet?
Do remember that you are probably sucking all types of crud through your fuel filter when that low.

Aup mate, the fuel warning light comes on between the 1st and 2nd line, I've yet to run out of diesel (touch wood) but I've Been driving years and I am one of those who let it run out , stupid I know but money and fuel prices usually dictate how much I put in , so I could let it go down to the E then?
