dont fill the tank with the truck running, one 2.5 gallon jug is roughly a half a tank of def. I fill it up after I am done running the truck. It registers correctly when I take it out in the morning.

If the truck is running when you do it, yes I think it takes a bit to register.

@KRMO I fill mine with a 2.5 gallon OEM jug when I get down to about 1/2 tank, with my engine off, and never noticed any delay in it showing up as full on the gauge after I check after filling up.

I fill at the pump at a truck stop for around $3.00/gal or less when the gauge is below 1/4. After filling, it coasted up to just under completely full both times doing this, within about 30 minutes.

I was down to 1/4 tank of DEF and added 2.5 gallons. That raised it to almost 3/4 tank, which makes sense. Later that afternoon, it dropped to a half a tank. The next few days, it was back at 3/4. After work today it showed it was at 7/8. About every 10 minutes it would drop. Weirdest thing Iíve seen. How can I trust what it really has?!?
