    Hype ??

    I like mine but don't "love" it......and probably never will.

    Of course, any given owner might be either side of the "average" a bit.

    It is still in the tank.
    ALL gas gauges include a "hidden reserve" to try and make up for the "idiot factor".

    You got the right answers.
    Just one slight addition: The mirror shell mounts have some flex to them.
    It works best for me to hold onto the shell with your fingers while pushing with your thumbs.
