Tank on EmptyTank on Empty

Lousy Gas Guage

January 26, 2008 about Toyota Tundra

My low fuel light will illuminate...and the mileage range readout indicates "zero" miles....at that point I go the fill up the 26.5 gallon tank...and can only get 20 gallons in it! So I drove past the "zero"...I kept 5 gallons in the truck in case I ran out...but I was able to go an additional 80 miles before I finally stopped to fill up. I was able to put 24.3 gallons in the tank! It still had 2 gallons in it!

Toyota say this is an acceptable level of deviation. I say it is a miserable piece of technology...and Toyota can do better...but they won't. My fule guage is worthless....it is so inaccurate.
