Hello everyone I hope you are all well.
I have been having problems with my vw for some time now since collecting car does anyone else experience this photos attached.
These are my issues so I drive 13 miles and lose 50 miles out of tank, when I filled up the car needle got stuck and it took over a day for it to recognise what was actually in the tank, I have another picture where the needle is at the same point in picture 1 but that one says I have 605 miles in tank.
I contacted motability who said that the car shouldn’t need a service and doesn’t require one until 20,000 miles and as I explained my fuel issue they said get in contact with vw as it seems like there could be a fault, but please contact us to inform us about the service.
so contacted vw don’t want to name branch but her words left me shocked, so I got through to service I explained I was a motability customer and oil service light was on, her words “oh you motability you lot have a different service schedule” I’m soooo sorrrrrrry we are scum you lot? Told her about problem with car and her response oh because there was a fault and you noticed it you are now seeing a problem that’s not even there, the fuel sender could be faulty but doubt that, you had something stuck in the fuel sender unit after filling up and it’s rectified itself now and is sitting in the tank.
I am not being funny but this car has a serious drinking problem my mpg states it’s ok on the journey for the 13 miles it says I’m achieving 41.7mpg so how the hell am I using more petrol than a petrol station has to offer.
your help is very much appreciated.
oh forgot to mention vw sharan 1.4tsi manual, I know the automatic version has a really bad reviews but this is manual so makes me more confused.
