OBC problem

The RANGE button is not reading the gas gauge properly, the gas gauge is correct and so is every other reading on the OBC (like temp) only the gas range??? it usely reads 635kms-full tank ,this time 182 and counting up when I drive

if by chance you reset it - the gauge is calibrating. as you drive it will re-adjust itself to match your tank. The computer is calibrating it. Happens time to time.

I'm not sure on e36 models. one way is simply to disconnect the battery.

if the gas range on your obc is still counting up just let it do what its going to do. see if it is just calibrating. let us know how that goes.
