Overfilling will cause the issue you describe. If you know the original calibration (in percent), you can go into fill up and change it back. Your next fill will be off by the amount you've already used.

If you find a new technique or mod changes calibration over a couple of tanks, then you may wish to recalibrate.
Thank you a lot for the clarification I changed it back this afternoon and the figures reflected their normal amounts.

Made me LOL Tele man!

highly inacurate = 0.2gallons on a fill over 10gal for you?

+/- .3gal on a 10gal fill is typical for me, so i'd be happy w/ 0.2gal. to try to be more accurate i started tracking the SG readings / trim setting in my fuel log, so that i can look back several tanks before trying to make an adjustment
2000mc - Yes bud, it was when it has been less than 0.1 gals off for the past month in hindsight, that is only 2% off... a SG can't get much better I suppose!

Thank y'all for the quick feedback. Members like y'all make this site so great

Remember, thank a fellow EM'er for a helpful post!!!
