Fuel gauge

Post by taylo63 » Wed Dec 23, 2020 9:02 pm

Hello all. Bit of a weird one this. I filled the tank up to max a few days ago. Since then however the fuel gauge has not moved and is still showing as full even though the “miles to next fill” is now indicating 270. It was showing approx 313 when it was full.up”
Probably a trip to my local Mazda dealer in the new year, but thought I would post for any advice.

It sometimes takes over 100 miles before my gauge moves off full. Nothing to worry about

It can take a while for the first bar on the fuel gauge to move depending on type of journey.

Rather like our friend I-stop-these gauges have lives of their own.
I filled up to full the other day and the gauge said 423--drove home 3 miles where the gauge then read 401 miles...... :o
