    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?

    Doesn't sound normal to me, mine didn't do this after its remap.

    mines revo'd and doesn't do this, can't really imagine how the the remap would effect fuel readings?

    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.
