147 JTD



Just wondering: when the fuel gauge (spelling?? ) is on "0" does it means there's no diesel left at all in the tank or that there is still the reserve left (which is 6litre or so right??)???

Last time I got freaking close to "0" on the periph' just outside paris, with no gas station anywhere near.... I started to drive behind trucks at 80-100 km/h to save precious liters!!!! haven't driven so slow on the highway ever!!!

I've never been so happy to be at a gas station and have my hands smelling dirty diesel after that

Re: Reserve?

In the 156 JTD I have driven for 60km + on "0" before filling, but don't recommend it. makes for nervous driving!

Re: Reserve?

The reserve is around 6/7 liters indeed. The trip computer will beep and advise you to fil it up while stop showing the autonomy... then it will beep again... and after that... good luck
