As it says, how far have you gone once the trip computer says no more? Please state model of Mini too :)
Once the trip computer gets to 0 miles range if you keep going it changes to ---. Today on a long drive I got caught short coming home, it was showing 5 miles as I approached my motorway junction so I thought I will just make it to my local Tesco as I have done 2 miles on --- before.
But as I hit the slip road it went to 0 then after the roundabout ---:eek:
Anyway I drove in 6th for as much as possible and got to Tesco - 9 miles on ---

I had a fun one on saturday night :eek:

Returning home from Eastbourne to Farnborough up the A23/M23 - my fuel light came on just before I got to Pease Pottage services - which having just checked is a whole 51.2 miles from home with my range at the time reading 45 miles.

Playing the old fuel light bingo game I pressed on, and coasted into Farnborough reading ' - - - ' on the range - probably did around 3 miles on that in all :p

Same as yourself 8-9 miles in my present R56 MCS Works. Planned on stopping at a petrol station i knew, and it had closed down, hence the 45 mile..............drive on very light throttle adventure:D

Got from Warwickshire to Staffordshire, then filled up with 49.5litres.

Full tank had got me from Oxford, to London, a 35 mile tunnel run, and then to 1 mile from Himley Hall.
