Question Fast fuel range decrease!

Hope im not alone but, today as soon as I enter on the highway, the engine take the relay. No problem.. 90km left.. and I have only 45km to do until home.

Fuel decrease as normally.. no problem there. I take the exit and boom! The car say I must go at the pump right now. WHAT!?!?? I was driving at 105km/h which is more than respectable.. suppose to have 90km of fuel range.. 45km remaining to the house.. what the !?

Someone know !? This is my first tank I use since ive the car..

When the fuel gets low, the estimated range display goes away and just gives you the LOW warning. This happens when there is 1 to 2 gallons of gas left. Or in your case, 3.8 to 7.6 liters.

You can get back to the range display or any other display by selecting another display such as tire pressure then reselecting range display. The book I have doesn't specify exactly how much gas is left when it gives the LOW fuel warning or the expected range. A gallon should get you 35 or more miles. It would be nice if they were more specific.
