I'm gonna say no although that is exactly what I thought also. The only ones I could truly get near as accurate was the RPM and Temp needles. But I think the needles are spring loaded so once you remove it from the cluster it rotates more making it "uncalibrated" (if that makes sense).
So I started the truck and put the needle on at 0 mph but it was still off so I had to drive around a bit at around 15 mph or so to kinda get it close. And for the fuel gauge, I filled up the tank and estimated it just above the F, but still no luck. It's accurate now, only after I ran that tank til there was no more gas and had stalled on the side of the road.
I guess after resisting against the post after being on E for a long time recalibrated it to where I know I'd have no gas. Sorry for the long post
