Have you just bought it? How far have you driven it since buying it? Have you reset the gauge since you've had it?

Bought on sat and prob done 120 miles, I don't think the gauge has moved much since, but the range showing now 110 odd miles but gauges on over 3/4 isn't good, I even did the dial test Incase the dial was stuck or something but still the same

Reset it and see if it changes over the next week, even disconnect the battery for 1/2 hour so the ECU has to learn your driving habits.

fill her up so you know its full, then just drive, itll learn, if ive  been diving like a granny for a tank full it can sometimes register over 700 miles available, sometimes if ive beren kicking the balls out of it, it says theres only 300.  as the tank empties it will recalculate it, so long as you don't reset it, it will adapt to your driving and will be more or less accurate.

Your gauge is showing just over 1/4 tank of fuel so with 102 miles left to empty there is nothing wrong! I don't see what the problem is here? The 0 on the gauge is when your fuel tank iS EMPTY, 1/1 is FULL.

yeah, that looks about right, my fuel warning light pops on at around 100 miles and just below where your gauge is showing.

On a side note, I want your cluster! trying to find one on fleebay (for a sensible amount) is like finding hens teeth.

Oh what an idiot I am haha! The gauge goes the opposite way from my old car!

Not sure if you'll know this or not but the fuel pump icon on your gauge has a small triangle on it as well, that is to show which side the fuel filler on the car is situated. (Just a wee bit of info that a few people don't realise)

Why's that? Do you have the old cluster with the small obc display?

Mine is the display that's about 2/3 of yours, about an inch shorter than yours.

I didn't know that until it was pointed out when my dad collected his Fiesta a month ago, lol.

Got back, checked mine and was like, "Oh yeah!". Haha.

and  if you look at the fuel pump icon, the pump hose also tells you which side to fill up, at least it has on all the cars ive driven, they don't always have the little arrow but the icon does the same job, from what ive seen

Mine has satnav so I guess that's why my display is bigger
