aberdeen to london and back

have to say the clio managed it good no bother at all . just out of interest when the fuel light comes on how much fuel do i have left in the tank . am i right in saying about 30 miles on reserve . as the dash computer fuel bit showes ---- when it has 40 miles left on it or so then it states the ---- then the fuel light comes on . i always top up when the reserve comes on as i would hate to run out of fuel

I've had 60miles out the puma when the light comes on.

I would seriously doubt there the same...then again i'm not prepared to find out the hard way! Ran out of fuel in the z4...Soon as it clicked Zero miles it spluttered!

i get better miles out of the clio than my wifes bmw 318ti se compact the bmw seem to use more fuel than the cliosport i think . i may be wrong

I believe the light comes on and the ---- when you have 1 gallon left in the tank.
In my old 182 this used to happen at about 36 miles left.
In the Trophy this happens at 34 miles left.
A few weeks ago i managed 28 miles after the light came on with no problems, i was so glad to see a garage in the distance, it was a twitchy brown moment, lol.
