Every Golf has approx 7 litres when the light comes on, except the 4mo which has approx 8 litres left.

So depends on your fuel economy as to how far you have left...

He is asking how far he has left in the tank when the light comes on [:D]

1 gallon = 4.456 litres

7 litres divided by 4.456 litres = 1.507 Gallons

28 miles per gallon

28 miles times by 1.507 gallons = 42.2 Miles

But then you are dredging up all of the rubbish in the bottom of the tank and it is dependent on a perfectly flat journey with no sloshing about in the tank [:p]

Yeah I know what he really wants to know, I just read it another way[:p]

I would go for the nearest petrol station if your worried and just put a £5 in then travel on to your preffered brand knowing you have plenty in the tank to get you there.

Yeah, really wish mine had that function!

On golfs does the petrol light just stay on till you run out or like on my gf's astra does it start to flash or go red when you are seriously low?!

playing petrol station roulet/bingo wont get you anywhere. just fill it up. otherwise im sure you wouldnt want clogged up injectors etc
