Fuel light malfunction

Recommended Posts

Hi All

This is the second issue i have just come across, i had just visited family and had half a tank of diesel. I popped into the shops and then when i started the car again it was showing only 27miles till empty and the fuel warning light was on. I originally thought i had been robbed by some fuel syphoning gang... so i went to the garage to fill up but thought i would just turn the engine on and off and see what happened. After i did this the fuel went back up again? 

Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks.

Afternoon,

This is common if you park on a slight slant. Where I park at home I park on a small curb it doesnt tilt the car much but when I get in the car to go to work I can have low fuel warning with 20 miles left on it but when I get in my car to come home from work over 100 miles left. It just doesn't like being parked on a slope of any sort and takes ages for it to realise there is more fuel then it thought!
