I've never been brave/foolish enough to try - but on my computer it gives how many gallons have been consumed - and that's pretty accurate when filling up.
I think it 'blanks' the mileage so it indemnifies Renault from any responsibility due to running out of fuel arising from an inaccuracy - plus, there is no benefit to running on what lurks at the bottom of the tank - small amounts on water, sediment, etc - just waiting to choke the filter and cause damage to the cylinder bores. Plus of course, if its a diesel you run - removing air locks from the fuel system afterwards.
There are more enjoyable ways to spend the day (even in a traffic jam) - flirt with someone in the next car.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
