    Angry poxy fuel computer...

    im possibly being a plank but i havent used the car for a few days cos i been using the work van and i went out in it tonight, thing is i didnt realise how low it was on fuel cos the computer said refuel, so i did.
    because payday isnt till tomorra i only managed to put 1/4 of a tank in it and the needle went up but the computer still said refuel.

    i tried re-setting it and turned the car off for an hour but no change. i just thought id ask on here cos im confused.....

    thanx
