    Why not just keep it topped up? Simple solution :)

    I wouldn't have said it was a pressure sensor if it's actually cutting out. Are you out of warranty? EDIT: You can't be out of warranty on an S3!

    Yeah i thought that would be the best thing to do!

    Surely when you get down to that low you start taking all the rubbish from the fuel through the engine??

    5-10 miles is a rough estimate....it could just be 1 mile left.

    Why are you letting it run down so low? Mine never goes below 25miles to run

    OMG I get worried if the warning light comes on at 50 miles. Lowest i've ever been is 10.

    Because you get a 3 year warranty and S3s haven't been out 3 years yet. Well maybe JUST, but not on a '07 plate anyway.

    I don't think running on an empty tank has a good impact on injectors and the rest of the engine.:no:
