recently my fuel seems to be running out quicker than it should. my petrol was down to 2 bars and flashing at me. i puts 20 squid in and it goes up to just past 3/4 of the way. probably 20 bars (out of 24) i think, cant remember exactly.
anyway, ive done 99 miles som far and its down to 4 bars already
ive checked for leaks and the fuel lines seem to be ok, no new wetness or owt. also cant smell any petrol.
what else should i check?? as i dont think ill get 50 more miles from 4 bars of petro at this rate (to make up the 150 miles id AT LEAST expect from 20 quid....)
The dash runs off a different sensor than the ECU.
I'd suggest doing a fault code reading. Andy K has a load of "how to's" on this.
On my 8v GTE you connect two pins together in the diagnostics plug (over passenger wheel turret under bonnet) and then turn the ignition on and get a load of flashes from the ECU light on the dash. 3 flashes = 3 and so on.
