Icon 4.3 fuel level accuracy question

I have a question about my icon 4.3 screen fuel level. The tank was filled 132 gallons and so I calibrated the level and it’s showing on my gauge. I just used my boat for the last 6 days and used the trip function every time. Adding up the total fuel burned , it was 75 gallons. With this being said, the digital fuel meter still shows slightly above 1/2 a tank. Is there anyway of adjusting the gauge? Also is the total fuel burned pretty accurate when using the trip function of my icon screen? Thanks for the help . Jim

If this is the first tank of fuel you have used with the new gauge I would think you would need to refuel to find out how accurate the gauge is before trying to calibrate it.  I don't have Icon gauges, but my Lowrance fishfinder had fuel flow that was very accurate after it was calibrated based on actual fuel used. It told how much fuel in gallons was used and how many gallons were left-not 1/2 tank and so on.

The operator's guide that comes with the 4.3"display explains how to set up and calibrate the fuel gauge section.

Glad I know . Been having problems since new with fuel gage. Replaced the sensor twice.
