When my petrol light comes on I usually have about 30 miles of leeway left before totally empty. When the Thetford cassette toilet red indicator comes on in the middle of the night tinkel does it have any safety leeway like a petrol engine ie I can put in another litre or so before it's really full!! I'm in France at the mo and too lazy to walk to the facilities. Such dilemmas in life :cry:

but the crud at the bottom of the tank tends to get shook up more when it's nearly empty rather than full so it's in suspension rather than lying on the bottom.
It’s really is an old myth and understand why people believe this, of course way back I. The past rusty tanks have flaked and fuel pipes carburettors jets have blocked but that was way way back. But as I say the pick up pipe is at the bottom gravity allows any particulars to fall to the bottom it matters not whether the tank is full half or nearly empty.

Already gave example.
But if you believe that fair enough. (y)

Well that`s our 14th year & still loving it.
Brings me right back to the old days when you pulled the pot from under the bed, If your thumb felt anything warm it was definitely time to empty the pot.....
