    Fuel Distance to Empty display

    Hi there, we're new owners of a 2018 T32 LWB Highline. In our old car (Volvo V50 Estate) we had a 'distance to empty' display as part of the on-board computer, which was really useful. The alert comes up when the fuel gauge reaches 'empty' and tells us how many miles we have left, but on our...

    Afternoon all, I am new to VW, and only 1 week in, so may seem like a daft question to some..... When I am coming to stop or just manoeuvring slowly, I can hear a swooshing noise, which I think is coming from the fuel tank. Is this normal? If so, I can learn to live with it, just want to...

    Fuel Tank, Be Aware

    New years eve, tried to start her. Plenty of effort just wouldn’t kick in. Ended up calling VW Assistance. They turned up within two hours, anyway, the issue it ended up being the slope on my drive, it isn’t what I would call steep at all. The tank showed a quarter of a tank. I have never had an...
