Well here is my guess, and we'll have to wait and see. The dealership kept telling me the refuel warning light was on, but when we started the car this morning there was easily a quarter tank if not more.
We go pick up the car, sure enough, the light is on and it is registering at the top most red bar at the end of the gauge.
After driving the car home, as we go down our street, the needle starts rising, approaching the quarter tank mark but not reaching it.
Go to the gas station, fill it up, 13.3 gallon and it wont take a drop more.
18.5 gal tank - 13.3 gal fillup = 5.2 gal left in tank.
Since it's all 'lectric and stuff my guess is something is faulty and the car may have thought it was out of gas? I have no idea, grasping for straws. Especially since the dealer is adamant there is nothing wrong and they are blaming it on the cold and low fuel.
5.2 gallons of fuel is good for about 145 miles. That is 7 days worth of commuting for my fiance, a day skiing (almost) and plenty of other destinations. So I find it hard to believe that is considered "low fuel" to the point the car would not operate properly.
Thanks for letting me bitch, maybe it will help someone else out. Now keep your fingers crossed that things stay sane for the next 6 months until we can turn this mutt in to the shelter.
