haha mine used to be off by 1/4 but now it's more like 1/2 tank. I think the float got bumped with the new pump. I fill up at E and it puts 7-8 gallons in.

The stock ECU only reads the float incrementally. The 1/4 drops on most turbo cars are simply because the MAF isn't there or working with the ECU to fill in the gaps with the float reading and/or the O2 sensors are gone as well. The smooth operation of the fuel gauge I believe is a combined calculation of the MAF and O2 readings.
