Yep - kinda involved, butt doable. Lemme find it over in HoW and I'll ping ya back.

Edit: Gotta drill down the page and find the formula for sync'ing the OBC's fuel mileage, Bill. Good luck. Not sure this will fix the dash fuel light tho, Bill. That may have to be fixed by removing the fuel level float tube from the fuel tank, and taking out any kinks that prevent the float from reading correctly.

Re: Fuel Light ???

You have to show up at the dealer with the amount of fuel in the tank you want the light to come on with (1 gal is good). They can re-set the light to come on at that point with the ModiTech computer. I have not looked to see if the GS-911 can re-program that or not.
