Re: Fuel Gauge Problem (Lugnut)
I have this exact problem. Needle does not move for at least 100 miles. However, once it gets low, it becomes more accurate. When the low fuel light comes on, it's right on the mark. However, annoying.
Since this was about the tenth minor problem with my car and it was out of warranty, I wrote VW a letter asking that it be fixed for free. I received a call and Pete said to have it diagnosed as broken and VW will assist in a monetary manner. Driving home that same day, my glove box hinge broke for the second time.
So, the dealer fixes the glove box for free since it was less than a year that they replaced the first one. As far as the fuel gauge, the computer said that it was working just fine. Now, my second grade math says it's broken. VW won't pay, I gave up.
BTW, my car is great despite the annoying things that went wrong, love it.
