Hi all
First time poster. I have an 11 plate 1.6 diesel acenta.

I tend to fill the tank up and donít let it get below around 50 miles. Over recent times Iíve noticed that the range that says how many Jules left on current fuel level isnít accurate. For example, a full tank used to say 499 miles. I filled up this week and it says 460. Iíve done about 40 miles since I filled up the tank but range is saying 411 left. Iíve checked I donít have a fuel leak and the diesel gauge seems to be working ok, and the mileometer also working fine.

It didnít do this before!

Has anyone come across this problem and f so how did you get it fixed? Iím not overly impressed with the local Nissan garage so donít want to take it there in the first instance.

Thank you!

It's calculated based on your current mpg, if you've been sat in traffic or something else which has given you a bit of a low mpg recently it will be using that.

I've had the miles left to empty say something like 200, then go on a 30 mile high mpg motorway drive and it then say 210 to empty.

Thank you- yes I was aware of that but am doing the you same regular journeys but with a drastic change. Sometimes these in car computers are a total pain.
