    I know others are having this issue. I have 2600 miles on mine. The fuel gauge went down to 3/4 full and went to full overnight. This happened with 196 miles on it. I went through about 3 or 4 tanks and seemed fine. Last week I filled the tank up to 1/2 full. Next morning it went to 3/4. Filled the tank up, went to 3/4 and then the next morning it was full again. I took it to the dealer again. They had it for 4 days. I got a packet of about 15 pages of the diagnostics they ran etc. They filled the tank up and I picked it up last Friday. Drove about 150 miles and bam, did it again this morning. Has anyone found a solution to this? I have taken this to the dealer more times in 3 weeks than I have in 10 years with several Rams. I am starting to have buyers remorse. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    unfortunately, there is not a well documented true fix I have read of , (tsb, recall), so you’ll have to deal with it a bit longer

    part of first year early production woes , Toyota will fix it at some point

    I'm having similar issues with my fuel gauge. It actually happened while at the dealer today. I am bringing it in to get looked at in a couple weeks and update this thread if they are able to find a fix.

    Are you parking on an incline? If so, try parking the opposite way with nose down. Will usually fix itself. Kinda dumb but the fuel sensor is probably over saturated causing the incorrect reading. Happened to me once or twice whenever I parked on an incline overnight. I noticed it read that i had a full tank when I got in. Went to the store, parked in the opposite direction with nose facing down hill, and in about an hour turned the truck back on and fuel was reading correct. Kinda strange. It's only happened a couple times for me. Normally I park on a flat surface so it hasn't happened since.

    Has anyone figured out this issue? This continues to happen. Pretty much weekly. If not twice a week. It's beyond frustrating at this point

    I took mine in for it and they did a "hard reset" of the onboard computer but it didn't fix it. They left notes on my account if it happens again. I just haven't had time to get it back in. It doesn't happen all the time but frequently enough it's a pain.

    Make sure the dealer notes within the Truck Maintenance history specifics of the issues. Shady dealers will dumb it down only noting - "conducted multipoint Inspection."

    I have the same issue. For me it usually reads lower than it should. For example, I'll fill up the tank, put 20 miles or so on it, and the gauge reads that I only have 3/4 of a tank. The next day it'll read Full. very strange but hasn't been a huge deal for me

    Same happened to me. I had mine parked at an incline and notice a couple of days later it showed full even though the last time I noticed it was 3/4 full. I’ve since parked it on a level surface and fuel gauge is showing consistently and not fluctuating.
