Hey all,

Weird one.. tank got empty and topped up later today just with a tenner as doing the full fill up later in the week, weird thing is got !!! RANGE !!! 0 miles stuck on the OBC when the dial has gone up with the correct filling reading. Any thoughts? Might go in the morning. Sensors for gauge and miles range the same source or separate sensor?

Disconnect battery for a few minutes if problem persists. Sounds daft i know but you would be supprised how many times this fixes silly faults like this.

I had a brand new Corsa D courtesy car with 49 miles on the clock, when i picked it up the petrol light was on and the needle was resting on empty, so off to to put £5 worth in as you do, for 2 days the needle didn`t move but when i got back to the dealers it moved to just under 1/4 :sus:

There is a setting in the software for amount of fuel you have to go back above for the range to recalculate and only putting a tenner in you probably haven't gone back above it, especially if you were low before hand.

Wait until you fill it and everything will be OK.

Try pressing and holding the left hand steering wheel control in whilst displaying the range on screen - this should force it to be recalculated.

yer i have same issue. I have been told and read a few times on here that if you fill up from empty with £10 £20, low ish amounts anyway it does not register.

all vauxhall H's do this.... its bloody anoying. when i had a courtesy sports hatch they made a note of the petrol they had in it before they gave it to me. then before i gave it back i put a tenner in it and it did not go up at all.. range and the gauge so they thought there was no fuel in it and deducted a tenner from my deposit...

this happens to me all the time, if i put a tenner in from totally empty wouldnt move but if i put in £20-£30 in it would register crazy stuff lol, also had the problem in my G of the fuel gauge not reading correctly eg needle not moving then gradually rising the further you drive (like your making more fuel as you drive I WISH haha)

Never had a prob with the Astra doing this, i set off for a 25 mile round trip one day and noticed the light came on almost straight away, anyway i did my trip on empty and then put £20 and all was fine, needle moved and no problems. But this has happened in a Corsa i had for a few days.
