2 weeks ago, I brought my DS to the dealer to get the fuel gauge issue resolved. Was told it was fixed via software issue (fuel gauge calibration something or other . . )

Yesterday, I recently let the fuel tank go down to almost zero (distance to empty: 9 miles). I refueled and could only fill up to 16.7 gallons (before only let me goto 14.5 gallons). Since the fuel tank capacity is 18.5 gallons, I still think I have an issue . . . thoughts?

so has anybody on these forums ever filled closed to 18.5 gallons in their fuel tank before? If yes, that should answer my question . . . thanks.

Thanks for your reply, Phil. Looks like you have never gone in to have it fixed, though, correct?

My dealer says that "the other 1.8 gallons is the other 9 miles you had until empty, which would make the total of 18.5 gallons"

I find it hard to believe I'm getting less than 4.5 mpg . . .(!)

thanks for all your responses.

LRDSnTexas: when you say "At zero I now put in 17 gal", what exactly do you mean by "zero"? Does it mean your "Distance to Empty" is at or around zero?
