I have a question on the size of the fuel tank
well usually when ever my fuel gauge shows red light
i just go and refuel my car, but every time when i refuel my car i can only
refuel up to 38 or 39 max in my car when the red light comes on
does that mean that i have a small fuel tank?
or does that mean when the fuel gauge red light comes on i have still got 10 litres of fuel left?
If you're consistently only putting that amount of fuel in, i would say yes, your light comes on when you have 10ltr left. on the MC, the light goes red when there are two bars left on the guage, im assuming the MCS is the same. When mine comes on, the OBC normally says i have about 90/100 miles left in the tank which is the equivalent to about 2.5 gallons which is 10ltrs - and i tend to get about 45-50mgp so is about right.
Hope that makes sense im a bit hazy this morning after a bit of a night out
I think the MCS has a bigger tank than the non S cars. The handbook has capacities in and, as above, the gauge turns red when on reserve of 8 litres. Having run mine quite low recently to see how accurate the gauge was I found it was pretty accurate when reserve comes on.
I guess we have gone well off topic, but since we are already there - In the US, we only get JCW, S, and Cooper (the "justa"). They all have the 50l tank whether R55, R56, or R57. This is a regional difference I didn't know about before. Kind of interesting.
