    I'm pretty sure it can't be reset, unfortunately.

    Had you changed your driving style just before you ran out?

    Reason I mention it is because the DIS calculates how far you've got left based on how much fuel you've used driving the last 20 miles or so. So, it's only ever a guide as to how far you'll probably get driving how you have been, if that makes any sense?!

    Mine seems no more accurate, although probably the other way, as a few times I've been showing 0 miles to go and haven't stopped! I've only ever managed to get about 58 litres in the tank too, which means there's still a few litres left in there somewhere. That's good though!

    I suppose in future you'll know that 30 miles to go means fill up now!

    They have been known to be fault or inaccurate in the past, do you guys just like driving with the fuel light on?
