Here is my tip for getting the car to show a full tank:-
When the pump clicks off the gauge will show 7/8th's full.
Continue to put another 4 litres into tank. The first 2 additional litres will go in easily if you just squeeze the handle half way, the last two litres is by trickling in the fuel.
Gauge will now read full.
I have noticed that the range for 7/8ths of a tank gives around 420miles per tank... adding the additional fuel gives around 470.
Also app then states the tank as full also

Hi

Tried this today. Fuel gauge shows full app shows 94%.

As a software developer I would be hauled over the coals if I produced code with this type of error. Come on Vauxhall get your finger out and sort the issue once and for all.

Cheers

Judging by what they're doing to my car they don't think it's software related. I'm sure it is though.

Filled up yesterday gauge read just above full, app read 100% 13glns drove home a short distance of 2 miles gauge still at full app at 93% 13glns.

Drove to work this morning 36 mile trip so total of 38 miles, gauge just below full app reads 85% 12glns

As another software developer I'd think that the app shows precisely what's being sent by the car, i.e. garbage in - garbage out :D
