    I disconnected my battery, then reconnected it and my DTE is showing 500+ miles till empty and doesn't correct itself. Is there an easy fix for this?

    You'll need to run 2 or 3 tanks of fuel thru it before the DTE catches up.
    Keep in mind when you hit 0 on the DTE, you still have 2 or 3 gallons of fuel in the tank..

    In the 26.4 gallon tank of my 2014, the most I've ever put in it is 22 gallons.

    Lol. That's one way to increase the gas mileage. If only it was that easy. I've heard pushing the truck around town works pretty good too.

    The fuel calculations are stored in the memory of the cluster. When you unplug the cluster or disconnect the battery that memory and data is lost.

    As others have said drive it for a while and it will return back to normal. Could take a little time for everything to "balance" back out.
