After reading the post again I think he has a digital type fuel gauge and is referring to the amount of miles driven before one bar of the fuel display goes out (ie from a full tank, say 5 bars to 4 bars)....

Damn digital fuel gauges, cant beat the traditional type.

You getting me or have I confused ya more ?
