Hi guys,
My trip computer in my EB starts beeping for fuel just under half tank.
It says 80 km till empty and i know its no where near empty.
Is there any calibration procedure or something we can do to make it work more accutately ?
Its pissing me off.
Ive reset all of it and had the battery disconnected to no result.
Cheers.

It appears to work ok. It moves around when i reset it. Likes to hang at high readings though. The car dosent really get a hiding Troy you know how i drive.
Just reset it tonight drove on the m4 and it was in the 11 range ?
Can the fuel sender be a possible cause ?

Yep average works ok. Was 38 ish last i checked.
Car was at 12.5 l this morning when i checked. All appears working :|
Maybe i should run it till the fuel light comes on then refill it ? I havnt done that for years.
