Mk1 Focus 1.6 Reserve Range

3 posts in this topic

Hello all.

We now have a new old Focus to replace our old new Fiesta!

Our 2010 Fiesta used to chime at 50 remaining miles of fuel - but our retro 2001 Focus has the usual fuel light.

Now this question wouldn't bother me, but my girlfriend wants to know how many miles you could typically expect to drive when the light comes on until you splutter to a halt with no fuel...

My guess is about 50 or so, am I right?

Tbh, as soon as the light comes on you should look to the nearest garage.

Think of all that crap sucking up into your fuel filter and pump.

The very lowest I'll let my car got to is 1/8th of a tank.
