    Hello. Just wondering if anyone has info on how miles to empty are calculated. When I first got the truck at the dealership it read 599 miles to empty. Second fill up said 579 and today it read 561. How could I have lost 38 miles so fast? Does the computer recalibrate after seeing you average as you use the truck?

    Yes it uses your average mpg to show the miles to empty.

    Your truck needs time to "learn" before it gets to be more accurate.

    I typically show around 315 after a fill up. I usually have 6 gallons left when the low fuel light comes on.
