Yours looks to be right then. I wonder why only some are wrong, maybe the petrols have a problem and the diesels are OK?

But, why showing 11 gallons if fuel deposit's full capacity is 10.5 gallons?

I guess it's rounding up as it doesn't do decimal points, although I've not seen mine say 11 Gallons I don't think.

My dealer has been in touch, they'd like the car back in to check the fuel tank sender, with a view to changing it. Personally I think they're on the wrong track but at least they're trying. We'll see what happens once it's been back in. They're ordering a new sender, and once they've got it will book the car in.

You will have to let us know how you get on before I take mine back to the dealers

Well I'm down to just above 1/8th and my range says 144 miles which I think is a bit ambitious. Onstar says 24% approx 3 gallons and 144 miles. Thing there's definitely some errors in the system.

Have you had any software updates via OnStar? Will it automatically fetch and install or is it a manual process?

Do you know if everything can be updated, including IntelliLink audio and the main car's software? I assume there are multiple processors running independently so I'd hope it can all be updated but we may find there are limitations which mean some things have to be updated via dealers.

As I posted somewhere else, I've had an update for the infotainment system, I think it said it was a DAB update, automatically over air. That's all I've seen happen.
