    MK4 petrol tank

    I had my fuel light flashing at me today, I filled up thinking it was just about empty, and less than 47 litres went in before it was full.

    I seem to remember reading that the mk4 has a 52 litre fuel tank. But how much of this is actually useable fuel? I dont intend on filling up last minute because Ive heard that you can draw loads of crud through the fuel lines that way, but would be nice to know just how much can actually be used.

    Thanks

    Thats pretty much all I can get in mine and from the trip computer if I reset the gallons used I know i'm living on borrowed time when it hits 10 gallons

    I take it you mean 10 litres

    When people say, I get XXX miles to a tank, is that a case of how much they can drive before they need to refuel, or calculate their mpg and then multiply by 12 gallons? The latter should theoretically be more accurate.

    No I mean 10 gallons.

    Reset the fuel used on the trip computer when I fill up and if it hits 10 gallons I know I should have filled up already
