Dash, miles to empty... off?

Our 1st RV and we have about 1500 miles on or 2018 FR3 DS32.

On the instrument panel i do like to use the miles to empty text that is provided by Ford. I know i have an 80 gallon tank. But even after filling it only reads 180 and then after i get past the halfway point it seems at some time add more miles to the reading, just seems weird to me... is this normal?

Any explanations?

Not normal, mine will read around 500 when the tank is full.

2015 30DS, depending on my most recent average mph at fill-up, my miles to empty will show 560 (7MPG) occasionally up to 640 (8MPG).

Just like a car I once had, if you didn’t turn the car off when fueling the gauge moved very slowly. Once the car was turned off “miles til empty” jumped to where it should be.

Is your ignition turned off when fueling ? That would be my only guess.

Mine usually reads between 580 and 620 after fill up.
