<strong>I know this is a pretty old topic but:
As It so happens I had this problem yesterday but the funny thing was after when I paid for the fuel and came back to the car turned on the ignition the level of the fuel was 1 bar under the full level ?
But then later on after I had traveled 15mins or so it corrected itself to the full mark
Does anyone know the answer to this why this happened ?
And yes I was on a level surface!</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">the fuel indicator does not respond to fuel level changes immediately, it calculates "averages", and this is for the instrument needle to be stable and not go up and down on each turn or bump. For example, it measures the fuel level lets say each 10 seconds and calculates the average of the last (lets say) 5 measurements and shows the result on the fuel instrument.
