    I have had a light come up where the low petrol light comes on, it looks like it may be an oil can with the word 'sensor' next to it (lost some pixels so it's harder to tell exactly), does this sound about right, it's a 99 S3.
    I have oil in the car as I checked right away.

    Any advice would be great.

    Oh & while we are on the subject of oil, is the turbo easy to access on the S3, I have an oil leak over that way somewhere I think as I get a little bit of smoke after a good hard run.

    Cheers

    Nice one, looks like I may have a sensor on the way out as it comes on, goes off, comes on.. all at random times, thought it was something to do with the dipstick as I just replaced the plastic sleeve as mine was busted up & had been bodged with sealant, ffs it only cost £3.50 & took 10 mins to replace, lol.
