Since the mod. that I had done on the last service in Sept my Outlander is not running the engine to use the fuel after 3months.

I filled it in the beginning of Sept '17 and was surprised when it didn't start running the engine in Dec, demanding to be filled.

I'd had a very economical few months and still had half a tank left.

It's now nearly 2 months later and it's still not nagging!

The annoying part is I forced it to run for while thinking it would demand it anyway, then it didn't! Hubby wanted the 'heater' on how unreasonable.

So will have to fill soon anyway. I wonder if this will then reset to 3months.

Anyone having similar?

Is it not that you need to use 15 litres and therefore if you’ve used half a tank you met the criteria for not being forced to run the engine?

And, I'm fairly sure that it is six months, not three.

My PHEV has demanded petrol three times in the two years that I've owned it.

:lol:

The way it's always worked with mine, before the mod., was to run the engine after 3 months, until I put in 20l of fuel.

Then it was OK until the next 3 months. Sometime I had to run the engine just to use up enough petrol so I could get 20l in!

Tried putting 18l in once but that didn't stop it from running.
