I would check the float in the tank. I have this same problem on a Ford van. The float got a leak and filled full of gas, making it stay at the bottom of the tank and showing that it is empty. The fix is to replace the float, which unfortunately is a big problem, as you have to drop the tank or cut a hole in the bottom of the trunk or floor in the van like I did, so I could keep working on it, with a full tank.

You might want to check that this is how your fuel is measured, as some of them are electronic, so you might have to replace the whole fuel pump assy to be able to replace the sensor. You should be able to find this out with a call to your dealer.

I have a 95 Eldorado out in my back yard for parts, if you think this is the problem and mine wil fit, I can cut it out for you and send the whole unit to you.

chevy and gmc trucks have an on going problem with this,turn the key on,and get a rubber mallot or a hammer and hit the bottom of the fuel tank a couple of times,this will unstick something in the fuel pump/sending unit.

Gas gauge is not reading correctly. Shows a full


the problem is caused by a defective gas gauge sending unit, this part is located inside the gas tank, you must remove the gas tank to replace it.

Cant put much gas in tank w/o it coming back out


It souds like the air return line from the fuel filler pipe is plugged. When you fill up the car the air has to escape from the tank or else the fuel backs up into the filler neck shutting off the fuel nozzle. The air pipe is housed in the fuel filler pipe and lets the air escape as the fuel is going into the tank. Remove the filler neck and inspect air bypass line to see if it is kinked or plugged.

Low Fuel Panel Indicator On


I know if your gas cap is leaking the low fuel light will come on but I never heard of the gas guage showing empty unless you have a float problem. The float is in the tank.
