Hi I am a new member to the forum from Kenya in Africa.My problem is the fuel geuge always lights red when it is showing 1/4 tank,but when I switch off the engine,it goes to zero.What might be faulty on these E30 of mine?Just bought it some two weeks ago.:tsk:

Welcome aboard. The guage will go to zero when the ignition is off, that is normal. I have learned the hard way that the guage is ver inaccurate below 1/4 tank. More than likely the cause is the sending unit in the tank.

yeah..I agree. they jump around a lot, but seem to even out once you hit the road, and if your OBC is working, you're covered.
