Hey, everyone. So. I just installed some skid plates that are made specifically for the element. One was under the engine area and the other replaced the OEM bar around the gas tank. After installing, my gas gauge has not been the same. I normally get 300 miles on a tank driving highways and 200 driving cities, but now with the skid plates, my gas gauge is close to half of a tank when I have only driven about 60 miles. I think last time I got gas I only drove over 150 total and the gas tank light came on with about 4 bars above the bottom bar on the gauge. Any ideas? What is the device that monitors the gas gauge? Is it inside the tank? If the skid plate is very tight up on the tank, would that affect that gauge and throw it off? I still need to do a few more trips and more highway driving to really get an idea. Thanks all!
