it said fuel consumption signal electrical fault in circuit p1250

Expert:  David-VAG replied 4 years ago.

Hi from what I have found so far this code seem to relate to a issue on the fuel tank sender. It is picking up that the fuel level is getting too low. The first things I would check is the fuel gauge and check that this is reading correctly when you fill the car up and when the fuel starts to get low. Also just make sure you have plenty of fuel in the car. If the car has a fuel range display also just compare this to the reading on the fuel gauge.

Whilst you check that I will do some more research in to the for you and get back to you within 24 hours if I can find some more information for you.

I hope this helps and if I can help further please feel free to ask
