Thanks agussy. Been monitoring this situation since I bought the car.
It seems that when the three dashes appear you have 5 litres left. At this point I zero the computer so I know how far into the reserve I am.
It is a bit silly because this car will do nearly a 100 miles on the reserve.
That's the problem with a digital gauge, when it says zero you really are in the dark. With a good old fashioned analogue gauge you can judge how close to the wind you are sailing because you can see the needle deflection from zero.
