If I were you, to be safe I'd fill up gas tank & place the needle on, set at full. I think that this would be more accurate than placing while it's turned off. When the vehicle is turned off the rotating rod that the needle attaches to, turns further than it's allowed to than it would with a needle attached to it. The needle stops it at it's the lowest point, but if no needle, it can actually turn beyond that spot if no needle on rotating rod. I would fill up & then place needle as close to where it was before when u had a full tank. Oh and do this with vehicle on so that the cluster is actually engaged. That's just how I'd do it though. Operator preference.
