No more news as yet from me, but I'm still on it with Vauxhall. Is your car a brand new 2017 model Swagger?

Thought I'd add my 2p. not had any issues with mine. I think it's a 2017 model (delivered end of August). App and fuel gauge both read full when the tank is full

I'm still waiting for an update on the highly inaccurate fuel gauge. The 1st 1/2 210 and 2nd is 1/2 is 410 giving me a total of 620 luckily the range to empty is alot more accurate. Also the average mpg is nearly 20% high

Cornish what your app saying 91percent full still. Did you do what I said. Plus 620 on a full tank is quite impressive my 1.4 say 439 miles. The extra clicks on the nozzle

I left mine in to get fixed, dealer told me they done a software update, but its still doing the same as before. I read that after the update the fuel gauge does a sweep when you turn the ignition on......is this only related to diesel models? As my 1.4 150ps doesn't do it.
