My fuel gauge seems to be playing up. Last night when I got home there was just shy of a 1/4 tank reading on the gauge. This morning I started her up and the gauge was on virtually 0. Parked on level ground. Went straight to the petrol station and filled her up, only 50 liters went in and when I switched her on the needle only went to about the 1 o'clock position despite the tank being full.

Any ideas what might be causing this?

Just give it time, it will sort itself out. Every car I have ever driven hasn't had a truly 'perfect' fuel gauge. If it makes a habit or becomes wildly bad you may have some dirt on the sender.

I used to fill my 156 JTD up and the needle would still read empty for a few hours until it gradually moved up to proper level. Just lived with it. Info centre gave correct reading tho.:)
