CAN is the computer network (just wires). Sensors are interpreted by the controller they are hooked to and that processed info is transmitted through the CAN to any other controller interested. In the case of fuel tank readings the controller involved is the Instrument Cluster. If the engine management controller uses this info (as it does for evaporative leak checking) it gets it through CAN.

No software in the CAN.
