reserve fuel

Go down

reserve fuel

Post  oldsomeman on Tue 11 Aug - 21:15

I have been looking and cant find reference to the amount of fuel left once the needle gets to reserve or the red section.
Is there any rough idea how many miles it might g before totally dry once it reaches the red zone??
Thanks

Simple way to find out, when needle goes into red top up tank & see how much it takes to fill, Tank holds 5 litres (1.1 gallons) so a simple bit of maths will tell you how much is left when needle goes into red. T80 does about 120 mpg so again a bit of maths will tell you how for you can go. To be on the safe side always best to refill as soon as gauge gets that low.

I carry a small amount of petrol in a bottle for such occasions, I think every t80 is different so you cant trust the fuel gauge, must admit you drive a lot more carefully when its on the red
