Be sure your tank IS full. Due to the placement of the FIT's tank and the design of the filler neck you need to "burp" your fit. What do I mean by burp? Fill up until the gas pump clicks off. At this time you should be able to get another 1.5 to 2 gallons into the tank. <snip>.
Doesn't this throw off the calculation?
I am assuming you now have more gas in the tank than the trip computer is expecting? (basically, full = "Full", full + 1.5 gal still = "Full").
