Like last time I filled up with gas I put in 8.5 gallons, so at 136 miles I need to have put gas in the car already. I noticed today the car was just starting to beep at me to get gas, and the trip read 105 miles, so it seems to work out just fine. (the car starts beeping at me when it calculates that I can go 40 miles on the gas I have)
If you don't do that, maybe it would be helpful. It is kind of a safety so you don't run out of gas even if your gauge shows some gas. My fuel gauge works fine and is very accurate, but I still reset the trip and keep track just to make sure. You can never be too safe.
well Shawn, that'* a great Idea! I forgot about that option.
That suggestion beats the $500-600 repair bill for a new Sender any day too!
