ive just filled up my car for only the second or third time ive had it and ive noticed the pertrol gauge is realy deceaving! so my question is when is empty actually empty??

the needle was on the E line, the warnign light was on, but i was only able to get 30 litres in the car, meaning that i had 5 litres in there???

5 litres meant i could have left it a day or so! only drive about 15-20 miles a day

Hi,

your warning lights are o.k. The light turn on every time your picando reach 29 litres, so you have 6 litres left on your tank, I think is for precaution, that is why they call it Warning light.... :grin: ...so don't worry.....
Hope it helps.... :beer:
