Driving it but continually topping up with deisal
Hello! Welcome to justanswer!So the gauge is reading wrong?
Yeh gauge reading just Under half tank full but will only allow us to put £7 deisal in
The petrol may have damaged the gauge float because of the alcohol content. I would run it low as possible and put the right fuel back in it. Run it a bit and the gauge may go back to working right. Worst case is the gauge float and sender need to be changed.
