Hi all,

I have run the tank as dry as I can the last two times. Both times the light has come on and flashed constantly.

However in both instances the max amount of fuel I can put it before it spits it out the top, is 33 litres. I thought this was a 40 litre tank?

I'm assuming it's just not empty enough?

The maximum I had with my 1989 SC was 39,46 litre.

With the other MK1s the maximum I had to put in so far was 34,28.

Friend of mine's little 125cc ran out recently. Didn't run dry but amber light for a long time, maybe 20 miles. Supposedly a 6.5l tank ( [Laughing] ) but could only put in 4.7l... I think these fuel reserve lights are a reeeeeally generous quantity left.

I ran an MR2 dry once but I can't remember how many litres I got in afterwards [d'oh!] [d'oh!] [d'oh!] [d'oh!]

It is a 40 litre tank. The light is on the conservative side.

All low fuel lights are like this. In my GT86 it has a 50 litre tank but the light comes on when I have 10 litres left.

The light is very conservative. The most I've got out of the car with it on was almost 50 miles before I bottled it and had to fill up!

My fuel gauge works but my low warning light doesn't. Anyone know what causes that?
I got caught out testing to see if it worked not long after I got the car [Rolling Eyes]
