Does this come on when there is 8 L left, as stated in the manual? My reason for asking is that I have not seen it on and I have gone shockingly close to being empty a few times. Is it a cae of it being burned out? The car only has 95,000 kms.

Thanks.

Maybe I haven't drained it far enough.

My 328's light comes on when I have 10L left. I am used to that. I once filled the car up with 61.5L (which is 1.5L left) and ligth was not on. I will check the fuse, then take the cluster out and check the bulb.

With the 320, I don't have an obc to tell me how my kms I have left. I will buy a bulb and when I have time, I will check the fuse and the bulb. Thanks guys.

In both of my cars (dodge ram and 323Ci) I have taken the "miles to empty" gauge all the way to zero. Thankfully I have never ran out of gas however. Wew.... ha It was funny looking at it though.

BTW, if anyone wants to know, when you're down to 2 or 1 mile to go, it means it. I ran out of gas about 1/4 mile from my house last month. Whoops. :)
