Yep. Try a test. Next time you get close to empty, put a full gas can in the bed and keep driving. See if you actually run out shortly after hitting "empty" or do keep on going?

Is your truck telling you its empty at 230 miles?
Do you or did you mess with the DTE setting for towing? It can mess this up after you set it back but it only takes about 500 miles to clear.
However this would only make sense if your strictly using the dte gauge as your only fuel gauge, as the regular gauge will still register the correct amount of fuel if I recall correctly.

Just curios, why don't you take it back to the dealer and let them sort it out? Like next time your near empty! Myself I don't care to run out of fuel with anything .
Sometimes with simple issues, that's easier said than done. For small stuff I fix it myself. It's easier than trying to arrange to get it to the dealership and arrange another ride. Even if they gave me a rental I still have to arrange to get the truck there. My dealership does not provide a rental until a diagnosis has been reached and it is decided that it IS covered under warranty.

Check your digital read out for “Miles to Empty”, see if it reads different than the regular fuel gauge. ‘This could help so you sort it out.
I agree its a fuel gauge issue.
