Give it some time to adjust and it should work correctly. We do not alter the way it functions in any way.

Your injector size is set to 1200 cc under 'Injector flow for fuel economy calc'. I think this is the cause.

Thanks!
I have tried many values from 0,750,1000, 1200..... Up to 1600 and i got the same results (the gauge is not working properly). My quesiton is, which value would you think is convenient for my injectors "RC750"?

It should be what the injectors flow at the same test pressure as the stock injectors, so 750cc. If you change this value it might not take effect until you fill the fuel tank again.

Put in the stock injectors. Disable boost. Upload the 'stock equivalent' reflash using AFM. Retest over one or more tanks.

You can't correct this on map cals.
You need to use a afm cal (or afm cal with map fuel tables). With this cals you don't have problems.
