Q: O que significa
I can't expect much from any of the petrol that was remaining in here.
Well, let's hope for Fuzz's sake, that is the case.

what does "Well, let's hope for Fuzz's sake, that is the case." mean??
A: Well, from what I've inferred from the quote here, Fuzz is in some sort of trouble .. "Well, let's hope for Fuzz's sake, that's the case" basically means that, they are hoping there is not much petrol remaining, as it will cause him more trouble ( from what I can understand from your quote.) and they are saying "that's the case," because it basically means "Let's hope that you're correct about there not being much to expect from the petrol, because it will cause Fuzz to get in trouble."

Hope this made sense. :-)

maybe?
