So over the past few days I’ve noticed an issue with my fuel gauge not moving off the full mark . I started noticing this when my MPG didn’t reset after I fueled up my car (I have it set to reset after refueling) also the estimated miles left till I have to fuel up is not increasing when I refuel . I usually get about 450 Miles per tank . I just tried fueling the car up and the pump just clicks off and my dash is only reading 396 miles on the tank . Anyone experience this ? I have a call into the dealer now as I will need a rental .

Sounds like the float is stuck or bent and wont go down with the fuel as you drive.

Off topic and probably not related. It is not recommended to top off the tank. I have seen many people keep pumping after multiple clicks and stops. Trying to get every drop in the tank as they can fit. This is bad for the fuel pump and components. Only fill to the first click and stop. This will prevent premature failure of the fuel pump
