I'm afraid your reply was unhelfull, and I still want to know an answer to my question, as a new owner I am going through the learning curve, and have no intention of making a habit of allowing the fuel level to go so low, but if the technology is available on the car to allow non panic status during emergency conditions then I wish to know about it, without being told the obvious.Why would you ever want to get to that condition. It hurts the fuel pump. Don't let it go below quarter tank.
Many thanks Sam B that's what I was looking for m8, so really we have three alerts, firstly the gauge goes down to one bar, then the pump symbol comes on and finally the last bar flashes or blinks, I'm happy nowI had to run my i10, 2011 Active, desperately low in traffic on the motorway.
Did 40+ miles and tick over for about 30 minutes after the last bar on the gauge was on , and low fuel warning.
The last bar will flash when you get really low, on mine it is about 3 litres left I guess. Kept running fine, so fuel pump must have been running
Must of been nearly dry, got 37+ litres in when filled!
Does between 10 and 13 miles to the litre depending on right foot condition.
