nocturnal drinking problem?

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I hate to be the starter of another "does your car do this?" post, but...

I've noticed that when my car is down to 1/8 of a tank or so, the 'range' indicated on the computer when I start it up in the morning drops rather significantly in comparison to what it was showing when I parked it the night before. hmmm After driving for a couple of miles the range increases back to approx where it should be. I don't know if this is some sort of quirk in the range calculations or what? Am I alone here, or are other m's drinking from their gastanks while we sleep?

Oh, by the way, no - no one else has access to the car.

Interesting that there is a technical reason -- I had simply put it down to my garage floor sloping slightly outwards plus the tires cooling down, therefore the car sitting at a different angle creating a different fuel reading !

It's amazing how your mind can rationalize many things.
