I have the opposite problem, mine shows less than what is really in there which also seems to be a common theme. When my gas light comes on I still have about 4 gallons in the tank so I never decided to do the recall.
Sometimes doing recall work can turn out bad, as in, they break something else and then you have to prove they broke it or they won't fix it. I have never dealt with this personally but just reading on the forums I have heard this, could be BS.
What's funny about all this is what happened to me. Before that Safety Recall was issued to replace the gas gauge sender, my dealer replaced mine twice to get the gas gauge reasonably accurate. The last replacement worked great and my gas gauge was finally right on.
Then several years later, my Jeep was at the dealership for some unrelated matter and they discovered the Recall had not been done so they did it without calling me. Yep, you guessed it, the gas gauge's accuracy after the Recall was worse than ever.
