So I'm not sure if any one else has had this problem before but I get about 300-350 Kay's to a tank. Not due to poor fuel economy tho, I average about 7.5ltr/100 around town and nice 13ltr/100 on the free way. It's down to a more simply issue , I've worked out ( through the hard way of running out of petrol) that I can only access at BEST 45ltrs of my 63ltr tank. Obviously my intank fuel pump isn't sitting low enough. But why? I haven't done anything to it. Any way I can resolve this?

Does anyone else share the same issue???

couldn't be anymore sure. i always fill up to the gun clicks off and do the basic math with the km reading and reset everytime. same consistent results give or take 0.5 ltr every time.

have a look and see if your tank is dented. I seem to recall only having a 45-50 litre tank on my VLski
