Set off for work this morning and after 30 seconds of driving the message on the display ' please refuel' came on.

how many litres/miles are left b4 i'll completely run out of petrol?

(i risked it and didnt bother filling up as i was late for work)

I've risked about 25 miles in my V5. That was the difference between 'please refuel' and the gauge sliding out of the 'no seriously, you are

low now' mark!

When i was in munich last year i went just over 70 miles after please refuel ...all 70/80mph on the autobahn>refilled including venting the tank was 61 litres...and that lasts about 650/700 miles all motorway speeds with cruise set?So its possible to do 80 miles max i would have thought?.

As for a 1.8 T 40 should be possible..as its states 7 litres so...1.75 gallons approx 40 miles ...easy subject to the hammer going down[A]

I have had just over 50 miles from the beep.

The dial will go past the red zone and then just past the white before you run out...... i've been there a couple of time, never ran out though!
