    petrol gauge

    ok

    driving along, in a line of traffic, notice my petrol gauge has gone from half tank to completely empty within 3 seconds

    the orange petrol symbol comes on but no beep

    get to my house, switch it off and on, beep and light comes on

    any ideas whats broken?

    petrol gauge is now stuck at completely empty, light is constantly on and trip computer is telling me i have 0 miles left in the tank when i actually have half a tank left

    cheers

    Mine did this once - left it for a week and it sorted itself out. Not had a problem since (in over 2 years).

    mmmm lol intriguing!

    anyone else heard of this and got a diagnostic?

    my guess is the fuel tank sender unit, but not sure
