OK - I mistakenly assumed there was a conversion when you entered in L (that it would convert to gallons).

Based on that, I think the most accurate way to do this (which also calibrates the gauge to your specific car -- which you would want to do anyway) is to convert litres to gallons and enter your fill in gallons on the gauge.

You've got a calculator app on your mobile phone I suspect (or get a cheap calculator to keep in the glove box).
