I don't think 15.4g fill up is premature, per se, but I think bone dry as measured by my gauge should be closer to 16.2g (IIRC from the OM), so that suggests that my tank is actually smaller...

Seriously, others have also commented that their tank reads zero, but they don't run out of gas. I prefer to know the accurate number w/o the BMW guardband. This reminds me of the same nonsense as the speedometer that invariably reads ~ 5mph higher than what my GPS measures so as to avoid liability.
