I have a Calais/Statesman instrument cluster in my VS.
Stopped at the servo and hit the "SET" button whilst the speedo was displayed and it showed me that there was -2.0l in my tank.I adjusted it so that it read 0.0l in the tank.
I put 50l of fuel in it and before i got in the car i turned ignition on and hit "SET" again and it showed 66.7 litres.

SO my question is, how can i calibrate the digital section of the dash to read correctly in regards to this?

What does the flocal of 625 mean?

Thanks in advance

Flow 625 is the stock setting for the ECU cals for instant fuel at DTE.

The tank calibration should be done on level ground and when the tank is full. Most roads and driveways will have some slope in it - use a jack if need be to get the car level.

It may be set to 80 lts on the trip computer switch at the bottom of the cluster.

If you have a V6 the standard capacity for a sedan is 63 litres, for a V8 and for Statesman/Caprice the standard tank is 75 litres. The larger tank was available as an option on the V6 but only for sedans.

Check the attachment below re calibrations.
