Is the tank really empty?
When my gauge says empty and i've driven back and forth to work a couple of times i rarely get more than 70L in.

Your fuel tank might have been compressed if the air can't get in as the fuel's being sucked out to relieve the vacuum.

Do you get a hissing of air when you release the fuel cap?

the tank, if brimmed, should hold a total of between 90 - 100 liters.

as above check breathers. maybe even take sender out when empty to check if it really is. check sender float arm for damage.

Silly question, but are you filling at the same pump/gas station?
Driving through Europe for 5 years, I've come across a few that will only give 59.98L and then cut out!!!!
Means replacing the pump, and starting again to get a full tank.

1st time i thought it was a credit card limit, but fuel prices go up each year and still they stop just below 60L.:confused:
