    Petrol guage readings off since remap.

    Bit random I know but I've noticed that when I put my remap on the car (using an STS unit) the petrol gauge reads incorrectly. Below us a picture were I've absolutely brimmed the tank then applied the map & the guage has dropped, I'd done 0.3 of a mile since the fill up!

    Forgot to actually ask the question.... Is this normal, has anyone else experienced this?

    It's weird, I've had to remove the map & reload it a couple of times & was pretty sure the fuel gauge had dropped then, but this is the first time I'd done it with the tank totally brimmed so I knew I couldn't be imagining it.

    When I had stage 1 Viezu map in my 09 S3 mine did exactly this!!

    Vagcom'd it. re calibrated the instrument cluster and it was fine.

    Mine was suddenly a 1/4 tank out after the remap!

    What is this "full tank" you speak of? It must be specific to TDI models.
