    Hello,

    I hope there is a disable or some kind of something to stop the "LOW FUEL" light and beep sound.


    around 3/8 of a tank during normal driving the fuel moves around the tank(like when braking), the fuel gauge drops and the "LOW FUEL" goes off. I accelerate the truck, the fuel gauge jumps back to 3/8 and the light goes away. This happens non-stop until I fill up at about 19-20 gallons.

    can this beep be disabled or is there something I can do to make the gas gauge/sender less sensitive? I don't like going to the gas station twice a week to avoid hearing this noise every time I drive.

    I don’t think I’ve come across an option to disable that in Techstream or Carista. But if you’re seeing that much sensitivity then you might have an issue with your float or whatever is used nowadays to sense the level. And I also thought our tanks had baffles to keep fuel from sloshing like that?

    Easiest, and possibly most smart ass, answer would be to fill up at 3/8 of a tank…

    My 2014 low fuel light doesn't come on until it almost hits E.
    Even then I know I have 6 or more gallons to go.

    But honestly, depending on the price of gas, I refill around half a tank or so.
    But that's around once a week.....

    Could fill a gas can when you are at the gas station then pour it in when the space is free. No seriously, gradually slow when you can predict stops which is quite often if you know much about driving. Your brake rotors will be very much appreciative and most of the time you can actually keep moving, maybe slowly but moving. Yes, I float through many stop signs kinda like stealing bases in baseball, no need to stop and run around the truck before moving if nobody is waiting for a turn. Traffic circles would be very much helpful if people would pay attention and drive.

    How's your charcoal canister? Did it get hit being used as a truck by chance?
