1998 jeep wrangler se gas gage

Hey guys I need some help with my 1998 jeep wrangler. The gas gage goes to empty before I run out of gas. I bought a 1 gal gas can just incase i ran out of gas and just let the tank go as empty as i can. I finally filled up and it only took 13 gallons so i'm assuming I still had about another 2 gallons in the tank but the nedal was past e. Anything you guys can recomend would be great.

Thanks

Most gauges are set up this way to give you a bit of "margin" between "e" and stuck on the road.Sometimes this is set a bit too high but adjusting it is not worth the $. Additionally, there is generally about a gallon of fuel remaining in tank that the pump cannot reach. This protects you against most heavy debris (rust etc) and water that acumulates there (even in the most well maintained vehicles) which would otherwise easily enter the fuel system. As long as you are not running out at 1/4 tank or anything, you are OK.

Gas gauge doesn't work


Hello
The no. 1 cause of the gas gage not reading or reading incorrectly is that the sending unit for the gas gage inside the gas tank is defective, this is esp true on older cars and trucks, In order to replace the gas gage sending unit requires the gas tank be removed.

Gas gage always reads full untill i turn off car


the fuel sending unit is probably stuck and need to replacing. common problems to many older vehicle it tend to read sometime correctly and sometime not at all. the sending unit will be in your gas tank.

95 jeep wrangler: gauge indicates 0 oil pressure


Wire on oil sending unit may have fallen off or sensor itself may have gone bad. Check both. If engine has no tapping noises, likely it's not a pressure problem.

You will actually have about a Gallon or so of Fuel left even when you get to the E Mark. Even if you run out of Gas there will still be some left, But the pump can't pull it up from that far down.
