Faulty sending unit(s)?

Use the hidden OBC menu to watch your live tank levels. You can learn quite a lot from that. Eg if the filtered value isn't close to the instant value, usually something wrong with the sending unit.

There was a service bulletin that describes how to add pressure to the spring/wiper that's what inspired me to do the repair rather than replace.

I've been able to reliably drive down to single digits miles to empty and also when I fill the tank it's instantly full.
