    Audi uses the fuel in the tank to help cool the fuel pump while it's operating. Many folks make sure they add fuel once the level reaches the 1/4 mark. it's only a warning for you to do something before you run out. Why run the risk of pump overheating by leaving the refill until you only have 60 km or less of driving distance. Also running the fuel level low, increases the risk that any dirt in the bottom of the tank will get sloshed around and passed thru into the rest of the fuel system.
