How Empty?

Hi all, When the fuel gauge beeps to say I need to add diesel to my '57 1.6hdi how many more miles might I have before running out?

All depends on driving style, terrain, the load you're carrying, atmospheric pressure.

Anywhere between 30 and 60.

I did 50 miles once when the light came on & it only took 57 ltrs to fill.
Steve's got the right idea though,allow for sod's law.:thumbsup:

If you're driving in town where there are loads of petrol stations all lined up ready to take your cash
you can expect another 50 miles.
If your in the middle of nowhere on a dark, rainy, foggy night you may get as much as 5 miles!!

I ran out of fuel once at 11PM on January 1st - 30 miles from a town with fuel. Had to drain the chainsaw fuel into my jerry can just to make it there. As a mate dryly observed, nobody was going to stop and offer help to a large bearded bloke waving a chainsaw on a remote roadside near midnight...

Can't think why Addo!! I'd stop to help. (provided I had a pump action 12 with me!)
