Marginally related picture of the highest range I’ve ever seen on my Jag after a fill up following a lot of highway driving. Normal is about 320.

On Monday, I started my car and put air in the tires. All told, I think it was idling in park for maybe ten minutes, which I know was bad, but the little pump I had plugged into the cigarette lighter, and reaaaally bad things happen if the battery is ever allowed to die on an X308.

Anyway, as you’d expect, the range on the digital display dropped like a stone by the time I got in the car. But here’s the weird thing: the analog fuel gauge was right between 1/4 and 1/2 a tank. I even forgot for a moment that I had filled the tank the day before. After about a minute of driving, the fuel gauge went up to a little over 3/4. I’ve never seen that happen before, and don’t really understand why that would happen.
