I have found my DTE to be unreliable at best. There have been times when I was at 6 miles to empty but when I filled her up only 11 gallons went in the tank. Then one time I ran out and was stranded on the side of the highway with the DTE telling me I had 25 to empty! Worst part was I had just gone by a gas station but it was overpriced Chevron and I was going to Sam's Club a couple of miles up the road. Lesson learned, I try to fill at 1/4 now if I can help it.
