2013 Rav4 Fuel light/consumption

Hey All.

Im just wondering if anyone can tell me if they are having the same issue.

I am finding that the fuel light will come on at least 17 liters prior to being empty. At approx 12-13 liters the needle says she's empty, yet when I fill her full I work out that I still have at least 12-10 liters in the tank.

That equates to another 100kms in some cases.

I am finding this very frustrating with the new Rav.

Yes I know Im sure it for a good cause, yet 12 liters is a lot of unused kms for me.

Thanks in advance

Get out and about, Enjoy.

That's common for just about every Toyota made in the last 20 years (and quite likely other cars too). Once you get to know the car you can work out exactly how far you can drive with the fuel light on before you _need_ to fill up, it's just practice/experience.

There's another post floating around on this same subject. Isn't it a shame that they go to all the trouble of having this whiz bang computer calculation and it's so far out of whack, it's absolutely meaningless!
