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.
Not me. Like others have reported I can only squeeze about 15 gallons in when my fuel gauge appears to be almost completely empty.

Thanks for your reply, Phil. Looks like you have never gone in to have it fixed, though, correct?
That's correct - have not yet gone in to have it fixed. I plan to do so, however, in the next few weeks and also have them address the rattle in the back seat. Will report back after fuel gauge issue is addressed.

Okay, here's an update: Just had the software patch installed to address the fuel calibration issue. Per my previous post, I like others could only squeeze about 15 gallons in when my distance to empty was approaching zero.

Today - after the fix, my message center indicated I had approximately 23 miles to empty (about 1 gallon) when I stopped for fuel. I was able to put 16.5 gallons in to fill it. So, 16.5 gallons filled plus the approximate 1 gallon that I still had makes 17.5 gallons resulting in a reserve after the message center indicates empty of 1 gallon (18.5 gallon total capacity). I am happy with the fix.
