This can be changed in the OEM Setup of the radio. To get there: Setup > AV > OEM Setup > Vehicle Feature Settings

What radio are you using? Gauges are able to be changed on most radios by push/hold on the gauge and it'll pull up the menu. If that doesn't work on your model, Vehicle settings > Gauges.

The fuel tank size is configurable, you'd just go into that same menu and adjust it there.

I'm using the Kenwood DDX9906xr. i've tried the settings area and while i am able to change the size of the tank right now i'm sitting at half and it says 87%. I have a 18.5 gallon tank. I've tried pressing on the gauge and holding it but all i does it go from a regular arrow to a blue trace arrow.

Correct- tapping the face of the gauge just changes its appearance. Pressing and holding should allow you to re-assign the gauge. To change any kind of gauges settings, I recommend going into the OEM setup menu of the radio (Setup > AV > OEM Setup > Vehicle Feature Settings). You'll have a lot more options there.

As far as fuel level goes, it is just being reported by the vehicle's OBD2 in a percentage. In some cases, changing the fuel tank size can impact this, but often times the vehicle is just not reporting the percentage correctly.

Unfortunately, no. We're simply taking the information the vehicle is sending and populating it. If one of the parameters is slightly off, this can cause the calculation to be skewed. There is not a way to remedy this.

Unfortunately, I ran into this same issue in spring of 2018 with my Maestro in my 2010 Challenger. I was told that the Maestro calculates fuel usage based on diagnostic info (injector cycles, etc) and doesn't read the Chrysler OEM registers that report fuel tank percentage. The fuel gauge data is available on the bus, and that's what our gauge clusters use, but programming brand-specific queries that can be flashed into the Maestro via the vehicle-specific process that we already use, isn't something they're able to work on. Or at least that's what I was told, back then.

By the way, the "Chrysler enhanced" PIDs for this are:
252 "FLVLP" "Fuel Level Percent" "%" 0
or
251 "FLVL" "Fuel Level" "gallons" 0

I'm reasonably sure this same type of info is available on my wife's Tundra since there's an app for it on the factory head unit.

New question same equipment. Today i noticed when my low tire came on that the levels it shows at each tire wasn't the tire. Is there a way i can switch that? I've read online that the challengers that came with the tire display factory has to be programed, when they do rotation. When i asked the local Dodge dealer at my last oil change they said it doesn't matter it just picks up the signal when we start driving. I think he's going off of my car not actually showing me which tire is low. Any idea?

Tire position isn't learned, but the sensor will relearn as the car detects them. I'm uncertain if the vehicle has the capacity to learn left front tire sensor as left front if the gauges don't currently display anything other than the low pressure light. The tire pressure sensors can typically be programmed to a set position on the vehicle with a dealer scan tool or some aftermarket TPMS programming pieces, but don't have experience on how that's performed. Don't want to lead you astray, but believe the dealer or a tire shop would have the information on programming the sensor locations to the vehicle.
