<DIV>My fuel gage can be quirky to say the least! I've run that thing into the red and I have never gotten the low level light! On occasion I've put 95 liters in a 98 liter tank.
Do you think there might be a problem??</DIV>

Dmax affair,


My short box Duramax had a fuel gauge like yours. When It read 1/4 tank there was only 5 gallons in it. Darn near ran out a couple of times until I learned the gauge and put extra fuel tanks in it.


GM fuel gauges show about 2/3rds a tank when there is really a half. Common and you just have to "learn" the gauge.

Mine must be pretty accurate, when it is on half I can get around 12-13 gallons in.


My truck is supposed to have A 26 gallon tank.

The fuel guages have been wierd for years. I get @300 miles to where the guage says half full, then about 100 miles for the second half of tank (26 gal tank). I've been trying to save a little bit of extra cash every now and then to get a Transfer Flow tank (45 gal). The 26 gal OEM is a hassle when I'm towing because I don't get very far in between fillups. The wife and dog like the small tank though because they get to stretch more often...

Go with the Transferflow 45 gallon tank, I average about 600-650 miles between fillups. You won't regret spending the extra $ for it.


Be sure to get larger fill neck and vent kit so you can use the "Big Truck" pumps.


Happy Holiday's To All!

Mine appears to be dead on. Just the other day I had just under 1/8 tank left and pumped in 23.5 gallons. I suppose 'E' on my gage would really be empty, no reserve.


Later.....
