Gear change / low fuel

Hi all,

With the low fuel warning light on (just), under hard accel the slush box seemed 'confused' changing from 1st to 2nd. The box seemed to hesitate, the motor revs died, then picked up, changed into 2nd and then seemed alright.
Tried the same thing with the box in Sequential shift mode with the same result.
Filled the tank and tried again - no problem!

Is there some electronic gizmo in the BA preventing hard accel / high loads with low fuel??? (stock XT)

I not 100% sure but maybe under hard acceleration your low fuel level dropped below pickup in the tank as it splashed backwards.(?)
