    I always fill mine up when it has a quarter tank left, so I always have enough to get home or to my dealer, if the dreaded fuel flap failure happens.

    Sorry about the delay in replying. I had to get back on the Beta App for Carista to see the fuel reserve, and had forgotten about it after the first time I went to check but was limited by the normal Carista App. the reserve is 12.8 litres, so calculating by your average mpg ought to give you an approximate range.

    So would I be right in saying if my MPG is 35, 12 litres of fuel would get me 92.39 miles? Have I worked this out correctly?

    Yes, but that will be pushing it to the extreme.

    There is no problem running dry. The system is well filtered, the fuel supply will reduce or stop before the filter lets any contaminants through.

    I work it out as 12.8 L = 2.815606 UK gallons. 35 x 2.815606 = 98.54621 miles, or 98.5 miles to be more sensible about it. I don't get that sort of MPG. I'd get 76 miles.Running out of petrol is no craic at all, so I'll leave it as an untested possibility myself.
