2012 Audi A8L: Distance to Empty

January 27, 2012


OK, my bad. Turns out our 2012 Audi A8L has a distance-to-empty display on the dash. But since it was so tiny and not anywhere near the fuel gauge, I didn't notice it when I pointed out the hard-for-me-to-read fuel gauge in a previous post. Editor Scott Oldham had to tell me there was one, and he should know. He spend 5,000 miles with it.

Anyway, after diving into the owner's manual I found out that the bottom red LED light in the fuel gauge and the low fuel indicator light turn on when the fuel level drops below 4 gallons. And then that bottom LED light will start blinking red when the fuel level is VERY low.

So there you have it. Good to at least know what the A8 considers a low fuel level.
