This is normal. You have an electric fuel pump and should not run it down to completely empty. The guage will display empty when there is still 2 gal in the tank to prevent this from happening. Add another gal for the 30 miles you say there is left to go and convert to liters and you have 12 liters left. Ergo, there is nothing wrong with your guage. /Bob In article <891cb9$2ugp$1nopsamce.news.easynet.net>, "Pete Turier" <pete_turiernopsamo.com> wrote: > Does anyone know how accurate the dashboard Fuel Computer is supposed to be > on a 9000.
