Mine is a little slow also but once it starts to move I have no complaints on the accuracy. I have not removed the tank restrictor and only holds something like 7+. If you are getting 8.3 in then it seems like it would be even slower to respond when full.

This thread I started was because (in my opinion) my fuel gauge wasn't working properly.

So..........

Did some draining and re-filling of my tank last night.

Dealership said they filled the tank for me after my first 100 mile service.

1.) After pumping out all of the fuel I could, I retrieved 7 gallons. At this point the fuel gauge read completely full.
2.) Emptied the tank and the last bar flashed between black and red so gauge is working at empty.
3.) Filled back one gallon and only first bar is lighted with no red flashing.
4.) Filled back 2 gallons and three bars are present.

Apparently my fuel gauge isn't that accurate at the fuller levels.

I always 'top off' my tank and I can add quite a bit after it shuts off automatically on slow auto fill. So how much fuel is actually in the tank depends on how much you squeeze in after the nozzle shuts off automatically.
