Hi There

I have just filled the on board tank, but can't see a change on the gauge.

Does this operate all the time or only with the power or ignition on?

We're off to France at the weekend, so I would like to feel confident while away.

Regards, Doowkrik

Needs ignition on and wait for half a minute or so for gauge to settle.

It's a bit of a crude device but if you care to crawl under the van and remove the aluminium cover on the tank you'll find a more accurate dial gauge.

You need the engine running before it will register

In my experience the gauge is very inaccurate. When down to one green light the tank will take around 12 litres. Also failed completely and required new tank to solve problem. Best to treat the readings as a "rough " idea to how much gas you have left! shrugg

True, I ran mine for 5 days with the fridge on while the red led was lit.  When I filled it up it took 16 litres.
I generally put in 10-12 litres whe the red led comes on

Thanks everyone. Success!

Why don't the manufacturers explain it in the handbook!
