Wink Plenty to go

How pompus some replies have been. The Clio has an 11 galon tank (50 Litres) which is quite large for a small car, your fuel light should come on at about the 9 gallon mark on your trip/fuel computer readout which then gives you on average at best 60 miles and at worst 30 miles to fill up before you are stranded..... I used to have a 02 1.4 Dynamique+ and the trip/fuel computer was very accurate running out bang on 11 gallons 6ft from the petrol pump. SO there is still plenty of fuel to get to the next service station on the motorway should the light come on. Hopefully that will have answered your question.
Oh one other thing sometimes if you stall it the fuel light will sometimes come on straight away at the wrong reading ignore it and just go off your trip/fuel computer reading.......... so long as you make a habit of resetting when you fill up. Now can some one explain why my 182 runs out at 10.3 gallons..........
