Default Running out of fuel-only able to fill up with 45L (12gallons)

Iíve had an ongoing but intermittent issue that no workshop seems to be able to figure out.

Happened again today. Just pulled onto off ramp from highway into traffic and our 1.9T stalled. Wonít start again, so I push it over onto road shoulder.

Itís happened before so we are prepared with a ten litre jetty can of fuel. Pour it in and it fires up and we can drive the 20 mins to the petrol station without any more drama.

Tank only takes another 35L on top of the ten I just put in. Itís supposedly a 60L tank.

This is has happened maybe 3 times now and large nationwide workshop chain couldnít find any fault codes.
Fuel pump and filter was replaced about 8 months ago.

It seems to be a fuel issue and Iíve whipped the pump out after a previous occurrence last year and it appears clean.

Any other issues to look out for?
