Petrol guage sticking. when refualing guage sits just above empty and warning light stays on.


The float inside the gas tank is probably "soaked" and doesn't float properly anymore. It will have to be replaced to get the gauge to work properly.

Gas guage not reading accurate


Your sending unit inside of the fuel tank is probably faulty. Unfortunately you have to drop the tank to change it.

Gas Gauge not reading correctly


The most likely culprit is the sending unit in the tank. They are relatively easy to change, as long as you don't have much fuel in the tank. It's a mechanical unit that has a float that raises and lowers with the fuel level, however with age, the floats can develop leaks and no longer float, of the electronic portion of the unit can go bad and not register the proper level. They are replaced and an entire unit, so it doesn't matter which happened, you will need to change the fuel tank sending unit.

Petrol light reading empty when full.


you can check to see if your guage is getting electricity to it with a test light first and foremost, and then use a wire to directly give it electricity without it being connected to the harness itself and see if it moves too, if it moves with giving it electricity then it's not the guage itself... then check the wires at the tank to see if the harness is getting electricity there. if it is and the guage isn't moving when you wiggle the harness, drop the tank and replace the assembly as a unit that goes inside the tank that has the float attached that makes the guage work.
