Fuel reading incorrect
So I had a weird thing happen yesterday. I decided to top up the gas (that's not the weird part). I wanted to see what the combined total range was, because we are mid-winter here (Quebec). I was able to put in just over $7 in the tank (cost of gas = $1.08/L)...so about 7L.
BEFORE I topped up the tank, the HV (ie gas) reading was at 350km, and the gauge (bars) on the right showed about 2/3 tank. After I filled up (and I did fill up...in fact, I inadvertently spilled a bit trying to top it up), I drove away...only to see that the gauge was still showing the same 2/3 full, and the range was still 350km! As I approached our local village....the gauge on the right slowly crept up, one bar at a time, to eventually show a full tank....literally at about 1 bar per km. Weirdest thing I have EVER seen in any car. Even weirder? The range refused to budge from the before-fill-up 350km.
I figure it's a computer/electrical thing...but I was super disappointed to see that when I went out today, it is still reading 350km.
I have no idea what to do. I mentioned it to my husband (who works at Ottawa Honda) and he said to take a photo and let them know (he always says it's better coming directly from the customer, not the salesperson like him!).
Before anyone says "oh maybe that's what the range is, during a Canadian winter", there is no way. The highest range I got last summer (when we bought the car) was 690km combined. As of late, in winter, it has been about 500-550km combined. So I know 350km is way off. More to the point, it's the fact that it never moved after filling up.
Has anyone had this happen before?
