    I had 2 pairs of glasses for reading and driving, 2 years ago I got the highest specification varifocals available, put them on and had no problems at all, it is important to get the best quality even though they cost a fair bit more.

    Fuel light??

    On my C Class, if the fuel gets too low, the engine management light stays on for three days after the car gets refuelled. Hope this helps.
