I have resorted to carrying a 3 gal can of fuel with me as I cannot depend on my gauge. Gauge shows 1/2 and ran out of fuel (4:50 am right in front of my house... had to steal some of momma's Dodge fuel) I have tried watching the odometer as I ususally go about 600km per tank and then I fill up, 78-82 litres. But lately have been towing alot and that effects mileage.

Is there as easy way to fix---or recalibrate fuel gauge?

I'm really surprised that yours went dead showing half a tank. I know mine is slow to get off the full line and then as soon as it hits half, it falls like a sack of hammers. Soon as the needle starts to touch the second red bar...your on fumes. Wierd. These gauges are pretty bad. Not sure there is much to do about it. Might be the sending unit?
