Just bought a 2001 C 70 Convertible about 3 weeks ago.
Everything has been great, car is in incredible condition.
The low fuel light came on and I immediately refueled.
After that it seemed that the engine surged an ebbed like
the gas was bad or trash in the tank. This is like the fouth time I have refueled. But I did leave engine running and I never have done that before. It is like it isnt getting fuel then like it is getting to much.
Any ideas

    It's always better and safer to turn it off. Most newer cars are always reading information from different sensors. When the gas cap is removed and EVAP system is running you will cause a vacuum leak. Be safe.
