I was wondering if anyone has experienced this issue before, where the fuel range and fuel bar increases and jumps around 4 to 5 miles within the course of 30 seconds of driving. I recently upgraded my basic lights to LEDS and wired a led strip into the 12v side marker wire but that should have absolutely no effect on the computer system regarding the fuel. The car battery was unplugged for a long duration and I am trying to figure if the computer was reset. I did notice that my dash and screen were reset to half brightness when I used to have full.
If anyone has any suggestions on what might be going on I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you

Oh and as a side note, the led strip that was connected to the side markers do have an in-line fuse that I linked in so there are no shorts there.

The fuel range updates around every thirty seconds to a minute. Depending upon how full the tank is and how you are driving compared to what you were doing prior it may change significantly.

This may be exactly what I was looking for, I thought on it last night for a bit and came to realize that maybe my average mpg was reset when the battery was disconnected and now it is bouncing around as it tries to balance out to the old ways. I never have seen it bounce like that before, then again I never watched it that closely either. I appreciate the response and I will give it some time to level before proceeding to other means.
