is there something wrong with my tank then? i had about 30 miles of range left and went to fill up and only 44 litres went in before the nozzle started clicking. surely the car doesnt do 30miles in 8 litres. i done about 480miles in that tank

You have to bear in mind that the trip computer works on a premise of the fuel sender unit reading, current exhaust readings and the live MPG reading, so you most likely would get more than that, but the car is programmed to read less than is happening, so that you dont get to 0 miles to go and conk out, you tend to have more miles that you can travel.
