    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?

    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.
