I got my C3 1.4 2006 (facelift) yesterday morning and it's been good so far, however i've noticed the trip computer fuel range hasn't moved. I have only driven for about 30 miles but i think it should of moved by now. I've included a picture so you know what type of dash it is.

Any help?

Hello ssnow66431

I'd give the system time before assuming its not working. Miles to run calculations are based on current average MPG and amount of fuel in the tank. Fuel senders aren't renowned for having a linear response and the MPG is calculated so between the two there is quite a bit of room for variation. On my car the miles before empty actually goes up sometimes, around the village and into town I average about 23mpg, a full tank reads as about 480 miles worth. A quick jaunt 200 miles down the motorway, MPG now about 35 and there's still enough fuel for another 480 miles - tis a miracle :lol:
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence and pretend you never tried :lol:
