How low?

Do you let your fuel tank go? I have just put computer on and it says 2L oops. It is a few miles to the station lol
 
lmao, mine never read below 5 litres, although when I was running upto the handing it over as a partexchange I put 5 litres in and when i checked the computer it still said i only had 5 litres :S

I try to fill up before the light comes on, but sometimes I get stuck and am driving for ages with the light on, it seems to last quite a while!

I try not to let mine get below 1/4 of a tank. It makes her abit sluggish for some reason, so I try my best not to let it get any lower.

I found that aswell, tended to be bout 1/8th a tank tho, performance just dropped away, tho my clio was in serious need of a service so i always put it down to that.

My old 1.2 used to do that when the light came on, would feel a bit more sluggish than normal.
Current one just gets quicker as it sheds the weight, currently on 63 miles to go and its flying. (as much as it can :p)

i dont let mine go below 50miles on the comp as i dont wana pick up all the s**t from the bottom of the tank
 
i let the petrol light come on, then drive another 10 miles or so, so probably about 20 miles left in the tank lol

isn't that what the fuel filter is for?

I've ran mine with the petrol light on for about 30 miles!

Lol....

Usualy fill up when the light is on, or maybe a bit before.

I've not yet seen the light come on since I've had the car. I've ran out of petrol before in my old car, and I was left thinking, why the f**k did I not just fill the damn thing up yesterday.

So now I fill up before it hits the bottom mark. Plus as stated before, I don't wanna pick up the s**t from the bottom of the tank.
 
The s**t at the bottom of the tank is a myth. Do you think the s**t in your tank is currently floating? The crap is already at the bottom the tank, which is where the feed is taken from anyway surely? As clart said, there's also a fuel filter :)

I always try to run mine on as little as possible to keep the weight down. I only fill it up when I'm going on a mototrway drive.

100 miles indicated on the computer is usually my fill up point, the needle is usually as good as at the bottom by that point. Never seen a petrol warning light in my life.
