PostSubject: fuel gauge accuracy?   Fri Aug 20, 2010 10:24 pm

I have noticed over last week or so my fuel gauge is a bit vague about its content. the other day i parked it up with a quarter of a tank and a day and a half later i went back started driving up the road and i was just above the red. then yesterday stopped at a shop turned engine off , came back started up and the fuel gauge had dropped again. is this a common thing or have i got a really annoying problem????

most are the trip computer is wrong 9 times out of 10 due to the fuel pump being on the left hand side and not centrethat does'nt help either as u are never on a level road so it always reads wrong if your light is on make sure you park with the passanger side lower that the drivers other wise it wont start the next day or dont park with near side wheels on the kurb always do it drivers

Zafira fuel gauges are rubbish, I always have to park my car facing up the street and not down when I have a quarter or less as there is a wicked camber at the sides of the road.

Same issure for me though if i park mine facing up it wont start so have to face it down

Annoying. Shoved £30 in it last week not even done 100 miles and its saying only 44 miles left in the tank.
Started today off at 75 miles done bout 6 max and now its down to 44
