I have a NC solenoid wired through the ignition and it's gravity fed.
When traveling, I turn the switch on when the fuel level is at about 1/2 tank and turn it off when full. No issues with the computer thinking the gauge is faulty.

I'm in the process of an identical install on my 2018 3500HD Duramax. As I tee'd into the filler neck it occurred to me that pumping fuel while driving (factory fuel cap on, of course) would (might?) cause positive pressure in the filler neck and tank. Did you do anything vent the positive pressure? Any issues as a result of the positive pressure? Thanks for the help.

Less problems when you T into the vent line and stop transferring when your gauge gets to about 3/4.
The gauge is slow reacting to the fueling, if you allow it to get to full I think this is one reason some have gauge issues and not corrected until you shut down and restart.
I’ll stop mine at 3/4 by the time the gauge settles mines close to full.
