Hey up people.

Just been out in the ST today.... I had 0 miles remaining in the tank (was past red on the Gauge).......Filled up with £20 of petrol.... And the distance i have done today was 24 miles.....Then when I got home after the 24 miles.... my Low fuel light came on..... Now i have 45 miles left!!!!

Is there anyway to reset it?

Yep, Thats better MPG than I get!

20 quid isnt going to get you many miles these days mate especially after your distance to empty read zero before you put some fuel in!

Normal TBH.

AT £1.15 a litre, £20 equates to 3.83 gallons. That works out at an average of 18mpg. for the 69 miles
In this cold weather with a car using more juice initially to warm the engine and more idling to defrost stuff and electrical things switched on, I can see why a normal functioning ST could return that MPG
