    fuel tank capacity

    Yesterday morning, I was driving to work, when the "low tank" light come "On".

    I drove exactly 26Km (16mi) after.Returning to home after my day work, I stop filled it. At my big surprise I put 56.1 liters, filled to the top.

    Not sure about this but the owner manual say fuel capacity of 48L. I know we can put few liters in the filling tube but !!! How can I put so much gas in it with only 26Km after the light came "On" ????

    If you drove 26 km and needed 56 liters...someone stole your gas. Not sure how, but even a Formula race car wouldn't use 56 liters in 26 km.

    I've let my low-fuel light come on about a dozen times , as soon as this happens; i'm filling up with 40 litres -every time.
    By my guesstimation they stole about $20.

    I said, after the "light" came on, I drove 26 Km before filling it. I knew , it was empty, the gauge is in my face !!!

    Yes you knew it was empty but that doesn't change the fact that it would only take approximately 40L to fill it from that point. The difference is how much you were ripped off for.

    are you sure you didnt pay $56.10 for fuel, because our tanks dont take 56L and lately fuel is in the mid $50 range to fill

    I just find this so hard to believe, there has to be some rational explanation. Lets see photos when you do it next time. That's like trying to get 5 L into a gallon jug - it don't work!

    I misunderstood what you wrote. But that doesn't change what others have said. The car simply doesn't hold 56 liters, so you got ripped off. The fuel pump has been tampered and the company is stealing from people.
