Default .2GT3 gas gauge

so I had to replace my fuel gauge under warranty at 6k on my .1GT3 and now my .2 is showing tank after a 100 miles of travel so might have a bad gauge. Anyone else having any gauge issues?

If you have the extended range fuel tank and you have a full tank it the needle doesn't move until you get to about 13 gallons. It will show full. This is how it was on .1 and .2....

Ok, I do have extended range tank and that might be it. Will put another 50 miles on it and see if it moves. Thanks for info

to any of our Euro 997.2 GT3 folks, is this how the fuel gauge in the 997.2 GT3s with factory extended capacity tank from factory behave? I’ve heard this how the US spec cars behave when you swap to the bigger tank, but I figured there was some dealer calibration/programming required to make the gauge/fuel sender function linearly.

I thought the same thing about my .2 with extended range tank. Needle never budged off full over the first 100 or so miles. Thought I may have an issue with the gauge, but it did finally start to come off the full mark with some further driving.

Same here, needle doesn’t move until 100 miles or so of driving (10-13 gallons I think)
