SOURCE: FUEL GAUGE AND LIGHT STAYS ON NEARLY EMPTY AFTER PUTTTING IN PETROL.WHATS THE MOST LIKLY FAULT. DODGY GAUGE OR FLOAT IN PETROL TANK.THANKS FLYNN.

Do you mean that the gauge registers as empty, even after the tank is filled? Probably the sending unit needs to be replaced (it's in the tank, likely partially attached to the fuel pump).

SOURCE: HOW TO REMOVE PETROL FROM MY PRIMERA

The best way to remove the fuel tank. You can't get all of the fuel out of the system without tank removal.

You will also want to flush the system out to remove the incorrect fuel from the filter, lines etc.

It may be best to have a mechanic do this for safety reasons.

OR

The fuel line could be removed in the engine compartment and pump all of the fuel into a container (can be dangerous if done improperly). You would need to use the vehicles fuel pump to empty the tank.
Then you can add the correct fuel and flush the system.

You may even want to change the fuel filter also.

Locate your petrol tank, then at top of it there is a hole where you can get access to the float level switch, before you removed it you check the socket on it, maybe lose connection.

Faulty Petrol Gauge


Hi there,
It could be 2 things:
1. the fule sender unit is faulty
2. one of the baffles inside the tank has come loose and is interfering with the float.
Either case you'll have to pull the float out to have a look. If you are doing it yourself, make sure youtake great care as you'll be dealing with fuel and this is a high risk work.
cheers.

Fuel gauge not working on alfa gtv 1998


Sounds as though the tank sensor is faulty. Access through top of petrol tank, note the wiring colours and position. Lift out and check condition of float and the rheostat wiring and slider. Get a replacement from EB spares

Petrol not running properly from the petrol tank to the engine on a nissan primera


check your sending unit on top of the tank. Check for 12V with key in ON pisition. If 12V is present, look at the connector in sending unit it self. Inside of connector corrodes, causing no power to the pump. No power to pump, no gas in engine. Good luck
