    My LP/petrol car has a factory fit LPG system and the gauge is also an absolute joke.

    It has a red light & 4 green lights. When full, all green lights are lit and they gradually go off and when the bottom one goes out, the red light comes on indicating an empty tank. This happens at about 110 - 120 miles after filling up. There is still plenty of gas as it will go to 190 - 200 miles before it needs to be switched to petrol. Until this week. Now it has decided that all 4 green lights should stay on all the time. I just ignore it and use the trip to decide when I am getting low instead.

    I think I am right in saying that car LPG tanks are different in that they are a liquid takeoff and therefore do not have the 20% gas area like a motorhome bottle or tank. I would imagine that yours has a float valve and could be adjusted for more accuracy.

    I guess the float valve has got stuck at the top then. It can stay there.

    Canít speak for others but Iíve got two 80 litre tanks to provide go juice and I canít get more than about 130 litres in so on the evidence of that Iíd say the 80% rule applies.
