    How much petrol do u have when..

    the light starts to flash? i had to go to town at dinner time, light was on, now had to go to a meeting up the road, and had to come back to the office, and the petrol light has started to flash at me.

    it is saying i have 40 miles left in the range. I know a few people have told me that these arent correct.

    Im wanting to know will i have enough to make it to petrol station near home, 6miles as its cheap there? or will i have to go down the road to a BP one, who rip ya off at 91.9

    The car is an Astra GSI MK turbo if that helps!

    I did a 25 mile trip home in my old 2.2 with the light on. I was doing 60mph on the 70 A55 just to be safe..

    I am sure there is loads left when the light comes on and it would be good if someone could come up with a definate answer to how much..

    Ad just to clear something up.. NO I was not being a cheepskate, I had left my wallet at home

    I'm a cheap skate, il run it to the bone every time! petrol prices are ridiculous and i hate puttin a full tank in. When you put ur pump in and pull the leaver im sure its having ur life when the price is ticking over ten to the dozen. lol
