Yes, there is a relationship between fuel level and fuel starve. But it also has to do with the strength and duration of lateral G forces, plus the condition of the tank baffles (which are known to deteriorate over time). Always try to keep as much fuel in your tank as is reasonable. Solutions include a racing fuel cell, or a fuel surge tank.I track my Elise a couple days a year, and all this talk about oil and fuel starvation kinda makes me nervous. Are these types of failures common or rare?
Is there any relationship between fluid levels and likelihood of starvation? In other words, would driving with a full tank and/or over-filling the oil sump a little for track days help my odds?
For oil issues, your oil level should be at max at all times. Not above and not below (within reason, of course). Again, strength and duration of G forces affect oil starvation, which can be remedied with a baffled oil pan, an Accusump, or both.
