    So like many 2nd gen owners I was getting less than 300 miles before the last pip on the gas gauge would start to flash. Upon filling up it was taking 6 gallons then it would click. I found out that you can recalibrate the gauge last night and did so. It will be a few days till I use a full tank. Anyone care to share their before and after miles per tank after recalibrating their gas gauge?

    How do you recalibrate the gauge?

    Here’s the link. After resetting mine I hit 410 miles till the last pip started flashing. Now I’m on my second tank and I’m at 239 miles and still 6/10ths of a tank is left.
