I filled out my tank capacity in gallons, what else do I need in order to get fuel range and % remaining? Car is a 4.6L 2008 mustang gt. I bought the extended parameters as well.

Unfortunately there is no way to do this at the moment. The Tuxedo dashboard does not use the enhanced PID, only SAE.FLI, which your vehicle probably does not support. I've asked my engineer to add enhanced PIDs for fuel range and remaining, and I'm hopeful we'll get it in soon.

A 2008 Mustang should support SAE.FLI (my 2006 GT supported it), and you should be getting range if you've filled out the fuel tank capacity. Can you get us a data log of a short drive, and the tech log that goes with it?

Would it matter if mine were a premium model? It is the deluxe and does not have the range with the stock display. But sure, how do I do that?

I don't think it makes a difference if it's a premium or deluxe, although both cars I've tested with were GT premiums.

I went and tested this on a friend's car just barely, 2006 GT, everything worked great after I entered a fuel tank size of 14 gal (which was a guess).

To get a data log, just go to the fuel economy page and hit "start data logging" from the menu. Drive around the block or something, then go back and hit "stop data logging". From there you can go to manage data logs and email it to sales. You can also go to the Console > debug options and email the tech log.
