RESPONSE AND ACCURACY LIMITATIONS FOR A FUEL LEVEL BASED DISTANCE-TO-EMPTY CALCULATION
With appropriate signal conditioning, it is possible to estimate distance-to-empty utilizing only fuel level and distance sensors. The relationship of speed of response to changing driving conditions and the accuracy of the calculated value is a function of fuel tank/fuel sensor design and driving conditions.
