Fuel guage reading seems incorrect
First off, I wasn't sure where to post this so if a Mod could shove it in the right place, thanks
Right. My Clio at present is getting between 26 and 28mpg, as I only do small trips to and from college and into town etc.
Each time I fill up, she gulps down 29-32 litres even though the fuel needle was on or below the last white line before the red and as I understand it, she has a 50L tank.
The onboard computer says she's used 6 gallons of fuel at this point, and so with the needle being near the bottom I'm wondering where the other 20 litres has disappeared to? I know it seems a bit pedantic, but being a student and with the current fuel prices, money is a precious precious thing
Any input to help me figure this out, or even put me straight would be very much appreciated as always
