    My fuel gauge is annoying me, When I fill the tank it never shows it as being full… I have just put as much as I could possibly get into it, and it still wants more….

    Any idea’s

    And how did you go about getting it modified?

    Had it done under warranty, it was clearly a manufacturing defect so even if you warranty has run out you should be able to get them to sort it free.

    Well today I ran out of petrol on my way to work, even though the gauge said above empty.

    I drove from Manchester to London on Saturday and it said full the whole way, today I was driving over M62 and it was at 1/2 a tank, then started moving up to full and stopped at full for the rest of my trip?

    Is it possible to calibrate it? Or what can I check?
