    Always go with the fuel gauge, not the miles to empty reading. The miles to empty is worked out on the driving style of the car over the last few miles.

    Under the back seat there is the sensor, sometimes these need a little clean. mine is doing the same thing the now. how far out is the fuel reading?

    My gauge is reading quarter fuller than what is acutally in the tank, i run it on the digital read out but basically fill the tank completely and after about 250-300 miles do the same, that way i always know there is something in the tank.
