    the needle is never 100% accurate and they do tend to hardly move for a little while then go quicker and quicker, but you should get a fiar few miles out of it,

    Yeah, mine doesn't move for 50-60 miles either. You're using the fuel in the pipe between the tank and the cap for that first few miles.
