I was wondering if some one could explain how the Gas gauge light works. When I am driving and I have a 1/2 Tank of gas left just before it gets to the 1/8 mark the gas light comes on. The manual says that the car has 8 liters of gas left at this point. it looks like the needle could travel another 1/8 but i am afraid i am going to run out of gas. then I think they should redesign the gas gauge because you really dont have 1/2 when at 1/8 the gas light comes on. Maybe my light or sending unit is malfunctioning, i figure if i can get 300 Km on the first half i should get 300 on the second half ?

Thanks

Gas Guage

Yea my 1999 c280pt has that, i guess its just a warning light, ive travelled pretty far with the light on. But i guess the light goes on because its better to keep your gas tank full. Yea its kinda confusing, cuz a half tank is not really a half tank on the guage beause the light comes on
