The settings file has the same settings for the resistive and capacitive fuel level sensors.

     resolution=0
     round=1

Yet the smaller tank shows the fuel level in 1/10's of a litre while the larger tank shows to the nearest litre. Is there a way to set the resolution of the value for the smaller tank to one unit?

So we solved this problem - or at least have a hack. It appears the fuel gauges don't adhere to the settings in the sensor (SFG) file. The other gauges seem to as I reset the resolution of the POSITION by changing the settings file from round=.1 to round=1

Tenths of a gallon may be a reasonable measurement but I go through a tenth of a litre every 15 seconds. To make my fuel gauge for the smaller tank just display whole litres I removed half of the calibration points. As mentioned in the forum previously, Skyview makes up it's own mind how many pours are required to calibrate the tank. In my case it was eleven pours of 2 litres for a 22 litre tank.

I removed every second calibration point in the DFG file. Skyview now thinks the amount of the pours is twice what it was. Four litres per pour instead of two litres. That was enough to make the gauge behave. Also notice that the cowl flap only displays whole numbers.
