The dial gauge on our tank never makes it to the full mark and usually only shows a bit over 3/4 after it's filled. May be wrong but I figured this is because the tank never gets filled past 80% of its capacity. However, the level indicator inside will show full when the test button is pushed until the tank level drops a bit. Again, I kinda figured this was because the 80% in the tank was as full as it should ever get.
Having said that, it doesn't seem right that the inside level indicator on the OP's shows 100% with only a half full tank. Never looked into it but I wonder if there is any thing that can be calibrated?
Edited to add: What twinboat stated is probably the way to calibrate.
