Like most newer vehicles the van has various display settings that I can cycle through, like trips, temp, speed and DTE, which I assume stands for Distance Till Empty.
This is the setting I’ve been using the most on this trip as it’s a good idea to know how much has you have left when deciding to skip a gas station.
It’s been working rather well until the day before last. Trying to make up some time I skipped a gas station knowing i had about 100km left. Well, the next town had no services. Neither did the next town looking diwn, I had about 40km left. Then, it stated LOWFUEL. Last time I looked, that wasn’t a number. And there was no way to change it.
So it was 20km to the next town. Did I have enough gas?
Maybe it was a Peril Sensitive kind of setting. “you don’t really want to know how little fuel you have left”. But I did! But it won’t tell me. Then the low fuel light came on. Awesome, I’m low on fuel, let’s check the DTE to see how much I have left.
Yes, I know. Very helpful, thanks.
I did manage to drift to a gas station. And it appears that I have a 70 litre tank. Good to know.
