have a factory fitted lpg system on a astra van 02, after a full tank i get about 330 miles-then light on fuel gauge comes on-i continue to ignore this as obviously i have petrol as a back up-and finally the red light is flashing constantly and i then start bunny hopping and i know its time to hit to petrol.

well the other day i done 80miles with the fuel gauge flashing...is this normal
or is my gauge very inaccurate.

Reserve - 80 Miles
1 LED - 30 Miles
2 LED - 30 Miles
3 LED - 30 Miles
4 LED - 30 Miles

Mines divided up like that. 30 Miles for each green LED, then 80 miles on reserve.

Apx. 40 miles normally but, the float arm can sometimes stick causing high or low readings.

Regards

I don't have your system but with my car it goes:
4 LED - 0-45miles
3 LED - 45-90 miles
2 LED - 90-120 miles
1 LED - 120-160 miles
1 Flashing LED - 160-260 miles
RED LED - you're out!

Gauge on my Zaffy goes a bit like this:

First 100 miles, gauge on max.
Then drops quite quickly over next 50-70 miles.
Fuel light on, got about 70 miles left
Fuel light flashing, got about 20 miles left.

Also the number of times I start the car has a big effect. On a long stint without stopping it'll stay fuller for longer, then move drastically when I next start the car!

Just remember to reset your odometer each fill up and use that to gauge how many miles you have left.

THB I never bother with the gauge I just set the trip counter to zero when I fill up. I know I've got a maximum of 175 miles on a tank [130 if I'm towing].
My gauge says on 'all lights on' for about 100 miles then after about 25 miles I've just got the red light, been like it since new. :roll:
