Do the 08's have a distance to empty on the fuel gauge? If so does the truck need to be told manually when the truck is filled up, or does it know by itself when it is filled up?chepdog said:I have the exact same problem, it sucks. Mine's an 08 also .
is that on all models shepdog? or just the LE's?chepdog said:Yes, the 08 have a distance to empty feature, when you filler up with fuel it recalculates the distance before going dry, which i have observed to be off by at least 55+ miles. Its a hassle, we have other vehicles with this feature and they are pretty much right on the money.
I have an '08 LE 4x4 crew cab and mine does the same thing. The odometer display will be replaced by the low fuel warning saying that I have ___ miles to empty, usually will come on at 30-some miles. I've always refueled before it gets too close to zero because I'd hate to run out of gas. Upon refueling, I've never put in more than 23 gallons, so we both have the same issue. I don't, however, view it as a problem. The problem I have is only getting 300-320 out of a tank. MPG is right around 14, which is to be expected. I had a Honda Ridgeline with a 3.5 V6 that got only 15-16. The increase in size, power, quietness and overall features in my Titan are worth 2 MPG.sdc8877 said:I have an 08 titan xe 4wd. My gauge will say zero miles left and I go fill it up for only 22 to 23 gallons. Is anyone else having this problem
Why don't you read all my post, I said I was sorry I didn't know the 08's had that feature. And I didn't say it should work that way. I would want it to work correctly also. No need to get smart *** about it.sdc8877 said:helomech thats pretty bright of you to figure out the mileage. My only point is that we pay $30,000 for a truck and probably would expect it to read out the correct information. I haven't run out of gas or would ever run out but for the money that we spend it should be right!!! Don't get me wrong I love the truck I test drove every truck out there and I think this is the best of them all. Just last friday I pulled out a 3500 ram 4x4 diesel out of the snow when we were skiing. Again I love the truck but if enough people complain about the problem maybe we can get a recall that would help us all. Thanks

I would think that re-setting the MPG/speed screen for trip (ie., highway vs. city) would make a difference. Maybe I've been thinking too much about my truck, but it seems that I can't get her off my mind.
