    Does anyone know what would cause the fuel gauge on a VE Omega to show a reading when the car is turned off, ie it is always active? It would appear to be providing an accurate reading. It's an Oct '06 ex cop car.

    some just stay at the last reading so u know whats in there without having to turn the ignition on, u may find when key is turned on it will go to empty and then back to current level

    its normal for the fuel gauge to be like that, my first ve back in 06 I noticed this and I thought it was a fault and I took it back to the dealer and they said its how it is supposed to work.
    every ve I have had since have all been the same.

    Mine doesn't drop when the engine is shut down. Can't see that it matters?????????????
    I seldom let mine get lower that 1/2 way down, so it just shows at all times what's left.

    My " other " car is a '96 Subaru and that is how that works also.
    It stays at the last reading when you turn off.
    You don't have to wait for the fuel gauge to slowly come up as you do in the VR.

    Thanks everyone for your replies. The car is my sons and I've had a couple of VE's but don't remember them doing this, obviously they must have. Interesting that my current VF doesn't do it.

    Google'd this and found this issue, well it not a issue:::Yes for the first time I noticed our VE does the same. It on, turn ignition on then the needle goes to zero and go's back up to the correct level. Interesting! Only notice this because my Daughter fitted a Leather steering wheel cover on our cheap repaired VE Anniversary and was stitching it on and I spotting the Fuel level was working and the key was not in the ignition.

    Your daughter was stitching on a new wheel cover? Lucky you. It's a pain of a job. My daughter just walks past our car and tells me it's dirty.

    Yes she is a very good Girl and looks after the old man and she done a extremely good job in stitching it as it a pain the arse to do it. She does a lot of men jobs and she is not scared to work like mowing the lawn, remove with me the struts on the Cheap Ve, She is stronger than me by a mile LOL,LOL.
    Anyhow the Fuel gauge is the same on one of our neighbours Ve Comm, Funny thing is I never pick this until I had to add the Steering wheel cover.
