To calibrate you just set the meter to zero or take a reading of fuel used so far and then fill up you fuel tank to the brim. Then all you need to do is have a play in your boat until you've used as much fuel as possible and then refill the tank to the brim. The fuel meter should be telling you you've used as much fuel as the petrol pump says. If not you press the + or - buttons to adjust the meter to match. Easy really. The more fuel you use in the process the more accurate as it evens out any inaccuracies.
