Accuracy of Km/Miles till Empty readout?

Pulled into the servo last night, LCD Display reading 49Km (30miles) till empty.
Been doing city traffic driving all week. Gauge was sitting off empty at the 1/8 mark

Now according to all official documents, the ST has a 48L fuel tank... And I managed to fit 47.5L before the pump went 'click'. Methinks I wouldn't be able to do that last 49Km on just half a Liter of motion-lotion.

Anyone else found the Distance to Empty figures... optimistic?

I run mine pretty low quite often. I have found that mine seems to fairly conservative. For example, when it says 30 miles to empty, I can only put 10.5 gallons in. I have run it past 0 miles to empty several times. I was a bit nervous doing that, but I think the most I ever put in was 11.8 gallons.
