The "fuel left to go" aspect of the onboard computer doesn't immediately recognise fuel being added to the tank - you'll need to drive it a bit more afterwards so the computer gets an update. Stick to what the fuel guage says - the computer really only acts on averages. Also remember that the guage is exactly what it says - it's a means of guaging what is in the tank - not an exact measurement. As most fuel tanks are not uniform in shape the content can vary quite a lot
