fuel gauge question

OK so I changed my fuel filters and oil today...the person that came up with putting it there was a moron but anyway. So I go straight to the gas station and put 105 bucks worth in her...now my fuel level in the dash daq is stuck at 99.997% and ive driven about 20 miles. Now normally that thing moves a lot. I havent driven enough to see if the dash gauge is moving or not but the lie o meter and miles to empty are adjusting...any thoughts?

I dont know what you are asking. Normally it takes more than 20 mi to move my fuel gauge. The filters have nothing to do with the fuel level in the tank. Try driving more, the fuel level will go down

Im asking about the dash daqs fuel level %. Mine usually moves down in percent rather quickly and right now its stuck at 99.997 which is as full as it normally registers.

Did you top off the tank, or stop when it shut off? If you top off the tank, you get more fuel than designed for and may take a little while to get down to where the fuel guage will move. The MPG and MTE monitor takes a reading from the fuel tank when you start up then relies on MPH and fuel PW to determine how much fuel is left.

I stopped when it clicked just like I normally do. Normally the dash daq goes to 99.997 then comes down. Right now just looks stuck...could just be to early to tell but with the 275 tune and my lift it usually moves fast
