On the weekend I changed over my cluster from a standard xt cluster to an xr cluster. everything works fine however I have suspicions about the Fuel Gauge and the DTE. Before the swap out the original cluster said that the tank was 3/4 full. After the swap the XR cluster said that it was closer to 1/2. I didn't think too much of it at the time so I went and filled up. the needles showed that the tank is FULL. I went for a country drive the next day and clocked up a little over 300kms. When I got home the Gauge read 1/2 full. Then today I drove about 10kms and I noticed that when I got back home the gauge was half way between 1/2 and 1/4. It just doesn't seem right to me. Any one got any ideas what my issue might be. I'm a little worried that I'm going to run out of fuel due to incorrect fuel gauge reading.

Have you put it into a XT wagon? From what i understand the calibration in the cluster is different for the wagon and ute tanks.
