    Getting ready to upgrade to a factory 38 gallon tank. Only thing I'm hoping someone that's more electronically inclined than I am can chime in on what I need to take off the donor truck to keep the distance to empty (DTE) on the dash accurate. Is it a body control module, computer, actual gauge cluster, or Toyota Techstream?

    Any valuable input would be helpful.

    Mine came with the 38 gallon tank and the dte has never been accurate. If you read the threads about it, some say it’s cause there is about 8 gallons in “reserve” and regularly drive past 0 miles to empty. So don’t spend too much money on just the dte part or you might be disappointed.

    I read the OP and thought "when the hell did DTE become accurate?"
