the fuel menu states.....left tank = 191....right tank = 190
my understanding this is in US pints ?
191 US pints = 23.88 US gallons
the EVIC says 19.* gallons
the other tank says 190
that is another 23.75 gallons
23.75 US gall is 19.88 imp gall...near enough what the EVIC states as a total
where does the other 191 come from...surely the car doesnt have a 47.63 US (39.66 imp) gallon tank !!!
my 7.5ton motorhome tank only holds 70 US gallons.
the EVIC appears to have a mix of US pints and imp gallons.
You have maybe found a way to make fuel ??? lol
Seriously though. My EVIC displays fuel content in Ltrs.
Why dont you change the units to "metric" display and see how you go, and if it makes more sense.
There is no sense at all in diplaying US Gallons if you have other options. Unless your a Yank living on the east coast of Yorkshire.

thanks Jack, but changing to litres wont alter the fact the values are incorrect, it will still add up to the same only in metric.
and changing to metric will also change all the other values...speed in KPH, consumption in ltrs/100km, TPMS in kpa etc (not that that will affect me)
not that concerned as i know how much fuel i put in and how far i,ve driven but the point is the values are wrong.
Ive got to opologise yet again. Sorry, sorry ,sorry I don't know what I'm on about half the time.
Just been out to check mine because as most people I havn't paid any attention to it.
I was going from memory and just THOUGHT mine showed the units as Ltrs , but it doesnt. (Ive just been and checked). Its interesting, what you have found.
Havn't checked out all figures on EVIC yet, just had a quick check for unit of measurement.
Will check mine sometime and let you know what mine actually says rather than guessing what it says.
Dont forget to keep using the free fuel though.

Can throw a bit of light on it.
The MinL and MinR values you mention are NOT volume of fuel but I think they are some kind of calibration factor that Chrysler input to get the indication they want. Mine displays 180 and 181 with tank 3 quarter full.
The numbers you need to read that show the fuel volume remaining are the numbers directly below the MinL and MinR. Mine reads 64 & 47 = 111 US Pints * 0.104084273
which equals 11.5 galls (which is somewhere near correct). Levels are difficult to measue acurately, and volume even more difficult because of the shape of the tanks. Dont think its possible to accuratley work out. Its just a guide and as long as top and bottom is about right, you accept the errors inbetween)??
19g Displayed = 19 Gallon Tank
Avg=Total of fuel (Adds Left and Right Tank Quantity) ITS NOT actually an average.
If you get someone to shake the car about and watch the EVIC you can see the levels changing on the numbers below the Minl and MinR but the other numbers dont change.
By the way.: JUST NOTICED THAT MY OIL PRESSURE READING ON EVIC SHOWS A GOOD OIL PRESSURE OF 115Kpa WITHOUT ENGINE TURNING OVER. VERY GOOD EH. EVEN GOT GOOD OIL PRESSURE FROM NOWHERE AS WELL AS FREE FUEL.
