It is as if the bike thinks I have 3 extra gallons at all times.
Mine did that initially although I never got the MTE up to the 400 range as I filled it up to see just how low it was when reading full. It took two gallons. Later I pulled it out of the tank and opened up the hard plastic shroud and I flexed the piss out of it looking it over and saw nothing. Put it all back together, then it showed empty all the time.
Still going strong after the zap I did awhile back.
