I have the BOE surge tank and the same thing happens to me. Gas meter says nearly empty and car only takes 7 gallons or so. Not sure why :shrug:

What aschen said. I generally drive it until the light comes on and then put 8-9 gallons in it. I also log my mileage on every tank. (22.5 - 23.5 for regular driving, seen 28-29.5 on long trips) ...

One time I had to choose between stopping for gas and being late, or pressing on with speed; knowing I was good to at least 225 miles on the tank of gas made me comfortable rolling in with 221 miles showing. Afterwards it still only took ~9.8 gallons to fill... its good to know where the limit is!
Do either you or Aschen have a surge tank? Seems us with them are experiencing this issue. I'm wondering if its related or coincidence.
