You will get a warning light on the dash around 100'000 mile's you can fill it up your self before hand so you don't get the light a way to make it last longer is to only fill the take when it's low it put's some in the fuel tank every time you fill up  Smile
                                     Smile  It's too orangey for crow's It's just for me and my dog  Smile

One high mileage user on here, had his warning light come on, to refill his Eloys tank around the 85,000 mile mark. I will be buying a refill bag just before I reach that mileage (I'm currently at 36,000 miles).

I had to get mine refilled at 125k miles by Citroen Stealer, always run my fuel down until computor says 50/60 miles fuel left and then brim the tank.guess that's why I got to 125k.

Good luck.

I too run from full to empty on every fill up we got to 83,000 before it threw up a light, just after a low fuel level fill up it went into limp mode that was within a year and a half, and I know Jim gets through the miles even quicker than me

Yes Charlie, you were the driver I was thinking of, but I couldn't remember your Forum tag of ATL_driver! I don't fill up as often with my new van, as I used to with my previous one (i filled it every night), but I'm worried about moisture build-up in the tank, if I don't keep it well topped-up. I'm still clocking up the miles quickly. I've done 36,000 miles since picking the van up on May 1st this year, and added another 526 miles with my run today: Leeds to Bradford, then to Hull, then on to Dartford, then my last drop in Chelmsford, then back to Leeds!

The guys suggestions are about bang on for your fluid top up.
However, the fluid is calculated electronically, so the computer works out when the top up is required.
This means a reset on Lexia or Diagbox is unavoidable .

your mileage makes mine seem like I just pop down to the shops, the new 120 6Speed manual would be ideal for your routes, mines all country roads, very slow progress unless I'm driving from 5am haha
