Welcome to 2004 GTO ownership, lol. You're like the 3rd or 4th person this month posting something about the 04 gauges acting up. The winter must have thrown the cars out of whack or something - even my gauges were going silly for a bit.
So, you're issue, though. Try some of the things in this thread.
My range shows an extra zero. If I have 120 miles left in the tank, the range will show 1200 miles. I'll try the battery disconnect too...
Twin Turbo 408 iron block with Comp 68/71 .81 units, custom LJMS Cam, CNC'd LSA heads, custom Sheepey Built 6" core intercooler, homemade fuel system, Flex Fuel'd, McLeod RXT1200 Twin Disk, all assembled and built by me at THE GARAGE.
Hope it's an easy fix for you both, that actually sucks. Not sure why it was posted in this section though...
thanks yeah ill try that..thought i had done it already while i was working on it afterwards but i dont specifically recall that I did.
Oh and I posted it in here because the only other section is "Sterio/Electronics" and I figure people who tune would be far more likely to know the answer to my question than steriophiles.
I use HPTuners so I thought maybe it might be a glitch since I did have it jacked up for about a week while I did a head swap...figured maybe while it was jacked up when I connected the battery it thought it was on level ground and the tank was LESS than full causing an algorithm to multiply the range ....
LOL idk that was my thinking anyways lmao leave me alone Im stoned XD
I'm and 05 and my range is having issues too. When the tank is full it says I only have a range of 70 miles.

My range has been good but when starting the car it will say low fule with the needle at the first red line, then very low fule and it will drop all the way down, then after dismissing that it will go up to the actual level.
