I am without words!


I might get words if I knew what you were talking about.

You are facing North
You have almost a full tank.
You have driven the car a total of 319 miles
You have 328 miles (Approx) left to drive on this tank of gas
You are stopped.
Idling at 650 RPM
In V8 mode
Temp around 200
OIl pressure 26 PSI
In SPORT mode
Car is cold per the tach but the temp says warm is that the problem?

fuel gage. left my house, gage was reading 1/4 tank. I was 99% sure I had just put gas in it the last time I drove it and it should have been at least 3/4's. I was going for 80 mile drive so I stopped to put $20 in. it would only take $19. when I turned car back on, gage pinned itself on E.

Blame it on the booze, your age, or the woman in your life!

If it helps, this happened to someone else earlier this year.

Your initial post was confusing so you can work on that?

Were you assuming that you would get 500 miles on a single tank of gas?

I can get it to read 514 miles remaining but it never gets that far. I either get off the interstate or I have to pee. My old tank can't last 514 miles til it is at "burst" mode.

I think the thing to do is bring it to the dealer and have it fixed. Then again maybe you should get rid of it or look into the NY lemon law and see if you can get out of it as fast as possible. This is probably the beginning of many problems with this car and if I were you I wouldn't drive it.

Don't you mean left to right?? Full is on top and moves to the right as you are driving.

I did the same thing when I took mine out for the test drive. I said to the salesman "Well at least there's a full tank of fuel" and he said, "No, it's almost empty."
