berlingo

i am having problems with my fuel gauge on a newly purchased Berlingo, it is modified to hold a wheelchair and the fact that the needle on the fuel gauge can go from full to empty in just a few miles is disconcerting to
say the least! the most i have got into the tank is 30 ltrs which suggests there is quite a lot in the tank but when the warning light goes on it does cause concern. i do not want to get stuck with a dependant in a wheelchair in the back. so far i have waited 3 weeks for the parts to arrive to replace the componant in the tank. i was asked to keep the tank low as it will have to be drained to replace the unit, that made me smile, how do i know whats in it! the car is 2 years old and i wonder if this is why the last owner parted company with it. any one else had this problem and resolved it or is this a quirk with Citroens that i will have to live with?

I have had 2 Berlingos and neither has had that problem, in fact neither have given me any problem whatsoever! You might just be unlucky - but it does not sound difficult to fix, and if it is any consolation Rover spare parts are in months at the moment.

I guess the modification was done by a specialist company who would have the parts specially made and possibly not made by citroen, I would try to get in touch with the company that did the modification.
