Hey, EF and EL Trip computers seem to have an issue, where if you run the tank till the trip computer says 0k's till empty, and then put like 20L of fuel in, it will still say 0k's to empty, even though the gauge says like 1/4 of a tank, however if you put something like 30-35 litres in, it will pick it up, what's going on here? and is there any way to reset it? pressing the reset button does not seem effective in this situation. Sometimes putting the dash cluster in "Ford" mode will reset it, othertimes it wont.

The range function isn't supposed to be resettable. When you drive the car, it will generate a range to empty calculation depending on your speed against the fuel tank gauge and will slowly adjust the longer you drive it.
