I have a 1.7D and it may sound strange but does the fuel from a half tank go down quicker than a full tank down to half? Wondered it the fuel tank is bigger futher up or somthing lol

Nope, it just seems like it does because of Vauxhall's "unique" take on the fuel gauge. :shrug:

The Corsa's fuel gauge very inaccurate, it goes down quicker on the lower half of the scale not because you use more fuel but because it didn't go down far enough for the amount of fuel you used in the top half of the tank. :dance:

If you fill less than 10 litres of fuel from empty it won't even register.
