Any idea why it says 4/4 when the tank is full?

The logical sequence is: 0, 1/2, 1.

    Because math dictates 4/4 = 1 and "1" equates to full? – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Aug 27 '17 at 18:01
  • Hmmm, maybe you're right! 0, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and then 4/4. By the way, even some old Mercedes cars have this as well. – kav Aug 27 '17 at 18:48
  • I've seen a lot of different European cars with this same thing. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Aug 27 '17 at 19:17

4 quarters = 1 complete ie the full tank is divided into 4 equal parts.

But, most if not all fuel gauges are inaccurate - so it may show 3/4 but the amount in the tank may not be that at all or the distance possible...
