Whilst on my way to fill up last night (20 yards from the filling station I should add) my 147 gave up, despite suggesting I had 41 miles left :mad:

My concern (I accept never to trust the onbard computer again) was that while struggling to tick over I had a "low engine oil pressure" message just prior to her giving up without fuel.

I filled her up from a petrol can and check oil levels etc and restarted. All appears fine.

Does anybody think a) I have anything to worry about or b) explain the oil pressure message.

I think that as it was struggling, the pressure is down and the light will show, I had this on my car when the MAF unit gave up and it would try and tick over at very low revs (or nearly stalling).
