Happened again today. OK petrol was between 1/3 and empty. But why should i have to watch it so closly. Kia have said keep a 1/3 in. Anyone else with the same problem.
What sort of slope (ie how steep?)? - have you tried parking'upwards'? The fuel has to draw from somewhere low down in the tank so if the slope is steep enough and the tank is mainly full of air that's all it has to suck on. What does between a 1/3 and empty mean?
