I have i20 2012 I-GEN (the one with DRL) model. The handbook says the fuel tank capacity is 45 ltr. Now, the other day the car blinked it's 'Low Fuel' warning light.I have read in quite some forums that you can safely say the tank has 5 ltr left after this light shows. When I went to refuel, it filled 45.87 ltr!! I am left wondering, 1) How could a 45 ltr tank fill more than it's capacity or is it that 2) the reserve tank is over the above mentioned capacity.

How much fuel goes into a car varies on a lot of factors. Now you haven't mentioned how many km did you drive post the low fuel warning light as that could also determine how much fuel goes into the car. Even though the manual says that the tank capacity is 45 litres, the amount can vary by a small margin, give or take 2 or 3 litres. Also filling fuel in the hot day or in the night also makes a difference considering fuel expands during the hot day and contracts when the temperature is cooler. All said and done, make sure you fuel up within 3 to 4 km after the low fuel indicator light pops up.
