Ignore him Dazz - its one of his wind-ups. HyBirdTech is a genuine company - but bugger all to do with cars.

Go to http://www.HyBirdTech.com

For the genuine site




I absolutely don't get that message on my car or in the owners manual - even when I ran the car out of petrol to check how accurate the DTE indicator was.

they are licking the big oil co's butt's!! make sure you use fuel. not full electric.
how many year warranty does the battery have? and is the battery fully recycleable ? if not where will it finish up when use by date?

when my battery go I take them to council recycle tip, but I don't know what happens to them from there.

Nothing like that in the manual of mine either. How would the battery get damaged anyway in case of running out of fuel?  :confused: AFAIK a Hyrbile Toy Yoda will do three attempts to start the engine in case it has trouble about it, before throwing the gloves down. I doubt Hyundai's system would completely deplete the hybrid battery in order to attempt starting the engine again and again?

However, what my manual does mention about draining the tank is that you must then add enough fuel to have the low fuel warning lamp go away, at least 8 liters, or even more if the car is parked into a hill. Therefore the typical 5 liter spare can is likely not enough to save you from being stranded. So my advice is - regardless what car you have, don't try to do a record between refueling, and don't trust the estimated distance display. It's not a sin to go refueling when the meter show 1/4 remaining!  :)
