so my question is how much petrol will be in each bar.
The last few bars are bit in accurate.. But not random values.
Even i had same doubt.
But I think if its approximation techniques, done by ecu to calculate.
Also there is a mis calculation.
Ie. The bars just denote levels, not fuel in liters.
Say if 3.5l
It takes another 3.5 liters to light up next bar.
So if 3.4l is added it may not show.
But after sometime it may.. If ecu thinks..
Mostly in my waggy.. I have seen even a liter more lights up next bar.
But one thing i am strong is.. When last bar starts to blink.. Waggy has only 2 liters left.
