Just had the fuel strip replaced at 4700 miles. Fuel gauge went from 1/2 to empty with the pesky yellow triange illuminated. The tech at the shop has seen this happen shortly after the computer software is upgraded. No explaination, just a coincidence.

Service covered but took about 3 hrs.:stick

One other cause that was discussed was ethenol in the fuel. Good luck finding non-blended fuel in the northeast!
