Everyones commenting on the speedo being 10% out, but has anyone else noticed how useless the fuel gauge is !!!!!
Fill up the Tank, cover 200 miles, drops to just below full. another 100 miles drops to 3/4 full, another 100 miles drops to 1/4 full, another 50 miles, light comes on.
Have done 12000 miles in 7 months including 2, 1500 mile trips to France, same happens all the time.
Does anyone else have this problem ????
I was warned by the dealer to never add fuel after the first automatic shutoff, so I don't. (There are threads on this forum as to why you shouldn't) On my last longer trip on the interstate, the gas gauge was down one quarter at the first 100 miles, down half at the second hundred and down 3/4 at 300 miles. around town, it is nonlinear with respect to miles driven, but so is the gas consumption. You have to remember that the fuel guage is an indicator, not a precise instrument.
