2xs, now when I fill up my range to miles does not reset.
It will register around 360 miles, filled upper 22 gallons , showing 25 mpg. ???
To me it's obvious he is wondering why his miles (range to empty) is not resetting upon filling-up with fuel.
That's not obvious to me...
I've not experienced the range to empty not updating after filling the tank, but several other odd quirks can be resolved by shutdown/restart of the engine. I'd start with that.
Does the fuel gauge reflect the added fuel?

My opinion is the topic relates to the "miles remaining", or whatever it's called, as displayed on the Evic. My take also is that does not re-set when the tank is filled.
The big problem is deciphering what people mean when they do not write with reasonable sentence and paragraph structure. Their failures in school do not make them failures. Many are quite successful. The failure is one of communicating their ideas in print where others can easily read and understand their meaning. Hopefully, with more writing practice, that will improve.
If it's an issue of the EVIC not re-setting after a fill, that's a new one to me. Other than a dealer investigation, I have no clue on how to help.
Use your head or my may have to use your feet.
Let me make it into a question.
Why is the range to empty on the Evic not resetting when I fill up . It has happen twice.
You should not have to reset it. When I refuel my JGC Ecodiesel it automatically adjusts to the fuel added. For example if I just finished towing a trailer and I have 1/4 tank of fuel, my range to empty is 100 miles and then I refuel it...it will go up a little to maybe 350 because its basing it on the average of the past few hundred miles plus the gallons of fuel just added to the tank. I have also seen it where in this scenario after refueling I drive 200 miles (all highway no trailer) and my range to empty actually goes up to 475 miles to empty after just driving 200 miles (the total between the two is 675 which means if I keep going the same speed and same driving habits I'll see 28MPGs or 675 miles from this tank of fuel). The reason being that the past 200 miles I was getting 28MPG. The MPG when towing the trailer as about 15MPG. The Range is always supposed to be adjusting to the current fuel left in the tank. If you reset it...it still some what change and it still bases the range of the past so many miles but it will adjust more quickly. The gentlemen that stated his did not reset could be because he is getting really poor MPGs and the fuel added to the tank didn't make a difference.
