T4 Post Icon DOH ..!! Ran out of fuel ....But there is a silver lining ..!!

What a muppet I am ,,!! Erratic guages , etc .. Anyway , the good bit is I ran out 800 yds from home , and a garage ..... Got a gallon of diesel , stuck it in , and within 10 secs of cranking , all is good ... thank VW for lift pumps , so you dont have to go through complicated procedures .... still kicking myself , tho ... !!

the old saying still goes "before setting of empty bladder and fill tank " or in my case empty bladder twice , oh and check the kids are in the back and I suppose the wife is in the front
