just a quick question. planning an aux fuel tank in bed. will use the kit to connect directly to the filler hose. will this drive my computer crazy. like going 500 miles with what amounts to no fuel leaving the main tank. i dont care if the overhead is accurate about "miles to empty" but i dont want to screw up the rest of the computer functions. has anybody had a problem
I believe the computer will think that your factory tank is full until it starts dropping after the aux tank is empty and it will show miles to empty based on a full factory tank and your mpg. It will not know you have the aux tank. Basically your miles to empty will stay the same until the aux is empty and the factory tank starts empting.
