    Hi guys

    Ifilled up my 58" plate accord with diesel 3 days ago and the fuel gauge needle is stuck on full ever since!
    At first i thought i may have over filled the tank,
    then i thought maybe its excellent fuel consumption,
    then i realised somethings wrong,
    the estimated miles to next refill seem to be more than usual, what have i broken?

    I think fuel consumption and fuel level are done from CANBUS signals, so try disconnecting the battery for 15 mins or so. This should reset the ECU.

    I recon he could beat TDK 919 miles to a tank!

    I am trying my best but not quite there yet. Since the last fill up the car has done 715 miles and the computer is currently showing 168 as the range remaining.

    As an off-topic note, wait till I reveal what I got out the CR-V last week :Fear:

    TDK, do you have a hole in the floor through which you occasionally put your feet through and start running ? :Tongue::Grin:

    Lordy no!

    I could just about peddle the Accord, but the CR-V is so much heavier for my lil-legs!! :Laughing:

    Well I am letting the cat of bag I can't hide this anymore. @TheDarkKnight does have a dress up now and again.
