Question about 2000 Audi A6
Hi, I drive an A6 Quattro (Tiptronic) 2.8 - 2000 model and a little while ago the petrol gauge starting showing incorrect mileage reading. Just to make an example, I'd put in R200.00 worth of petrol today but by morning it will be reading 10kms on the display.
What I would like to know is, is this not telling my car it has no petrol and if so, would this lead to the car stopping in response to this.
How can I fix this problem and what would the cost implications be?
Thanks, Thuli (Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal, SA)
I had same problem with petrol gauge bouncing around all over the place, full tank, half a tank and nearly empty in the space of 10 miles.
I knew that if I filled the tank I would get approx 200 miles for half a tank so I did that for a while and just kept topping up. Audi testing it and the fuel sensors in the tank had to be replaced. I'm afraid its the only permanent solution!
