My fuel gauge was reading just under a third of a tank. the display was showing 41miles. the fuel light was on on the dash. when I turn the engine off the gauge resets to zero. restarted the engine the gauge moved to a third of a tank. put £20 of fuel in the car and the fuel gauge moved to over 3 quarters of a tank but the display was reading 138 miles until next fuel stop with 26mpg mmm. normally this reads approx. 250miles and 61mpg. anyone help thanks fatbob

Suggested Solution

Drive it for a while and it may correct .Often happens and sometimes takes a while to recalculate driving manner etc . Sometimes filling tank can reset also .
