Hi, just wondering if anyone knows how long it takes for the petrol reading to show 'accurate' amount on the gauge when leaving the battery terminal off for months?
I had filled half a tank prior, but I waited around 10mins and it shows less than a quarter full.

Thanks

AFAIK the fuel level is based on a float in the fuel tank so no calculation required?

Maybe try filling it up until the petrol pump shuts off so you know it’s full and then if it isn’t showing full then maybe the float and associated parts in the fuel tank are faulty.

Normally just a few miles and it should be reading correctly.
I had this on our 1.8 Elite a few weeks back when i disconnected the battery. Just a few miles of driving and it was reading correctly again.
