you can tell the gauge is faulty if it says empty and you only get 20l into the tank when you fill it :roll:
if you are working out fuel consumption manually, the car is running fine, and you can't find any leaks, then someone is siphoning your tank.

Amen.


But from everything said, looks like you've got a leak or someone's stealing your fuel (or has in the passed, with the good ol' screw driver into the tank method).

soemthing doesn't add here. 50L/100km and you say it doesn't foul the plugs?

either your math is wrong or you have leak. the next question, are the injectors even big enough to spray enough fuel to see the gauge drop?.
