Titan Fuel Tank Calibration

I had a 50 Gallon Titan Fuel Tank installed and when my tank is full my truck tells me I have 300-350 miles to empty. At first I assumed it needed me to go through a whole tank before it could calculate how many miles I had left until empty, but after I topped off the second time from being almost empty, it still told me I have 325 miles to empty. How do I calibrate the new fuel tank to my truck?

Is your gauge accurate now? Have you gone full to almost empty?

Thanks

It was $1200 for the tank, but I'm not sure about the exact labor because I had many other things done at the same time. I watched a DIY installation on YouTube and I couldn't imagine a properly equipped shop to charge more than 2 hours worth of labor costs.

I heard back from my dealership about the fuel tank calibration and they've told me that the fuel gauge should be accurate but they're unable to adjust the "miles to empty" to accomodate for the larger tank.......How is this a sorry-but-no-can-do situation?
