Inaccurate fuel gauge

The complaint has been made that the above vehicles have an inaccurate fuel quantity indicator (deviation from the actual quantity in the tank on the instrument cluster display).

A software update is performed for the control unit (instrument cluster) in the contract garage. This adjusts the fuel quantity display.
