A friend of mine ran out of fuel with meter showing 2 bars remaining. The SC mention that it is a common issue. Take note!


Frend's Vios was 2010 model..

So is it float or meter problem. If SC knows they should be able to rectify it, No?

unfortunately not easy job. Alternative is to mentally move E to the 2 bars..and use trip meter as backup measure..

Cannot change the float or meter? Or to be safe fill every time it reaches half mark.....

This problem is float sensor damaged. Check what petrol owner use. Mixed or fixed to a specific brand?
