mk3.5 fuel gauge
May 25 2012
I know there are a number of changes/improvements on the mk3.5 but I wasnt aware that they have actually sorted out the 'dodgy' fuel gauge. On the mk3 it was not linear at all. As a rule of thumb from a full tank I'd usually hit the half tank at 180 but would have warning lights and almost empty (needing 42 litres to fill) at 300ish. Also the last quarter as shown on the gauge used to almost vanish in a blink of an eye and you'd be searching out a petrol station
On the mk3.5 its much more linear, half a tank shown is much closer to half the range used/left. The markings have also been changed and the scale now looks linear.
