GT Range display

Anyone else look at the predicted "range" on the cluster and it shows wildly inaccuracte numbers... for instance I just filled up and it showed 543 miles till empty LMFAO!

I have but not with the G8, my excursion would be very inaccurate at lower fuel levels. once below the 100 mile range the range would drop 1.5 to 1 and progressively get worse the lower the tank got.

Only really look at mine when it gets around 1/4 tank. I know how far it is to work so when is shows me I can't make it there and back I think about stopping to fill-up. Not the best way to do it but que sera!

its based on your recent driving habits. so if you just got back from a road trip its going to give you a crazy high number vs in town driving or beating on it it mat only say half that.
