Have my car on 3/4 full want to top it up but fuel gauge still showing 3/4 full


Fuel gauge is inaccurate. Just keep filling tank till it takes no more. And knowing the gas mileage you get on the car and fuel tank capacity, set the odometer and when you calculate that you are getting close to the bottom, get some gas.

My polo 1.4 se's fuel gauge has sat on 3 quarters for 3 days now, not normal with the amount of driving I do daily, what could be causing the problem? It changes a bit when on a slope though


Hi Josh:
I'd start by completely filling the fuel tank.
Since you know how far you usually can go on a full tank, when you have gone about alf that distance, the gauge should show about half a tank, and when you've gone just over 3/4 of that distance, the gauge should be starting to show on the low side.
At least, if you know that the gauge is not reading correctly, you won't run out of gas if you keep track of the distance and always fill the tank completely.
Hope this helps.

Fuel gage showing half a tank but trip computer only registering 60 miles left


Its very simple. If the gauge is showing half full then fill the tank and see how much fuel it takes. If the amount you add is approximately 50 percent of the fuel tank capacity then you know the fuel gauge is accurate . In that case the computer is giving an inaccurate reading and should be ignored. All you need is an accurate fuel gauge - it does not matter a row of beans what the computer says if the fuel gauge is reading correctly.

With full tank of gas the gauge go's full for a couple days then around half a tank the gauge reads empty 1993 voyager


It sounds like the sending unit has a dead spot on it causing it to read inaccurately. The tank would have to be dropped and the sending unit replaced. Check out this page and illustration to better understand what's going on. "How a fuel gauge works"

FUEL GAUGE SHOWING FULL TANK BUT BUT ONLY HALF TANK OF GAS


Hello. You may have a problem with the fuel sending mechanism in your gas tank or you may have a fungus in your gas tank which is causing it to show much more fuel than you actually have. Drive to an AAMCO repair shop where they will scan your car's computer for free [some auto parts stores now offer this free as well so call around]. If it is mechanical it should show up on the scan, if not you probably have the gas fungus. Some auto parts stores and dealerships now sell an expensive gas tank additive that will kill that fungus.

Fuel gauge not working


yea fords with two tanks are known for getting stuck if you dont switch the tank constantly. you have to get to the valve that switches the two tanks, and free it up. it definitley isnt anything but the valve.
