Hi there

A fuel gague is like a woman very temperamental.
You need to fill it and drive until empty.
To check how good it is.
Is it kept on a slope?
near flat service .... when i drove it for 20mins at start it didnt change much but it couldnt change that much could it????
why not get your kid to cycle into it and claim off the insurance lol
Don't trust a car fuel indicator, they can go from a quarter to empty in a couple of miles, as suggested, fill it up and then run it until near empty.
ok cheers people just checking it didnt have a leak or something
My Peugeot does the same.. 2008 model.. Full to Half is like 45 litres, half to empty is 15 litres!!
