You need to find out how much gas is actually in the tank. To do this I would drive the SanteFe until the low fuel light comes on and then fill it. The capacity of the fuel tank is in the information section of your owners manual. It should take close to these many gallons to fill it. If the gas guage still reads inaccurately, the fuel sender in the gas tank is faulty. The reason for filing the tank from the point of being empty is to be sure the tank has as much fuel as the guage says it has. Please reply on how you make out
