Low fuel light on honda civic ex 2012 stays on with full tank of fuel


The tank sensor is faulty. If you still know how much is in the tank with the gauge, then it's usually the limit switch which is part of the tank sensor..

2003 Honda crv fuel gauge doesn't register full when filling up tank also twice while driving the gauge goes to empty and fuel light comes on


Could be the sending unit in the tank or the gauge on the dash.
A mechanic would test each component by disconnecting the harness at the tank.

2003 Honda Civic Gas Guage says 3/4 full on full tank of gas


The fuel meter inside the tank has malfunctioned. One option is to replace the fuel pump. Second option is to bring down the fuel tank and remove the fuel pump and check see if the metering rod was bent. Now if you are not having problems with the fuel pump. I would deal with the gauge being low and continue running the car until the time comes to replace the fuel pump.

Gauge reads full when tank is empty


You have a bad ground, you will have to remove the fuel tank and check the connectons on top of the tank, probably corroded. You can clean the terminals or change them.
