Usually if the gauge is off, the gauge on the dash is faulty, or the sending unit inside the gas tank.
A mechanic would disconnect the harness at the tank and test the gauge on the dash.

SOURCE: gas tank?

It sounds odd that both cars are experiencing the same problem. This usually indicates a problem with the gas tank not venting properly.

SOURCE: fuel gauge issue

Hello. Before getting involved in real repairs, dump a bottle of fuel injector cleaner in your fuel tank. It may clean your sending units enough to get them working again. The chances of success are only about 50%, but the cost is very low. Redline, Chevron, and others make good fuel injection cleaner.

Hi... Mec C200 W203 2007 model it cut off when petrol is on half tank but when full no problem. .I have changed the fuel filter thinking it might be faulty but that didn't help. .I checked the return pipe...


Check valves may be faulty in the fuel line. Your gauge may not be working properly, showing 1/2 tank when it is actually empty. Have you checked how many miles till it stops? Also try this link.

If your fuel gauge is showing you in accurate readings this is normal to all vehicles that are not used to fill-up gas full regularly but sometimes the cause of the inacuracy is due to faulty float valve in the gas tank you need to replace it

their is a plunger in your tank just like the plunger or float in your toilet, if your car wont pass smog then yes check with your mech you might need a new evaporative canister or maybe a line in/out is pluged if your tank still wont register correctly my first comment would be in order to replace

Fuel Gauge not working


The switch that you use to change tanks is probably faulty - the switch supplies power for the sending unit in the tank, and to the transfer switch for the gas lines - use a meter to check it
