Empty fuel level gauge: Car won't start


Recommended Posts

Hey guys! Got a Vauxhall Astra here.

When the fuel level gauge reader reaches the green marker, my car won't start. In other words, it seems like there's no fuel in the car.

I have to top up my car with fuel and it starts fine after that.

This has only happened recently, the fuel gauge should go down to the 0 for the fuel to be completely empty. Anyone have any ideas why this problem is accruing?


  • - Fuel gauge reader does go to 0 when car is switched off.
  • - The green marker (which I drew for demonstration purpose) is when the fuel lamp illuminates.
  • - Its been happening for few weeks now, has been fine for the last few years.
