SOURCE: 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. Regards, Joe

SOURCE: Gas tank will not switch and gas runs out of fuel

Hello tlsnyder52: My name is Roger and I will help you. The problem you have is in the fuel select valve. This was a factory recall a few years ago. The recall number is 91S39.What happens is the valve sticks when you switched tanks. This returns all unburnt fuel to the tank you are not using. Basically fills the other tank while the one you are using goes empty. When you fill both tanks the returned fuel has nowhere to go. The fuel has to go somewhere and pushes out the vent. This is not a hard valve to replace. But I would check as if the recall was not performed it may be under warranty recall. The service kit number is F1UZ9B263B and can be obtained from a Ford dealer. Should You need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Fuel gauge stays on full


Sounds like you have a bad sending unit in your gas tank. You will need to take it to a mechanic to get checked. This isn't really a do it yourself type repair since it involves removing the gas tank.

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.

The fuel sending unit has a rhetrostat its a variable resitor ..As fuel is added the fuel lever mover along the rhetrostat and gives resitor signal to the fuel guage, the fuel gauge interpets this as level indicators to show on the gas tank.

1989 Saab 900 low level fuel light


You don;t say whether the fuel gauge is reading accurately, or whether it's always on empty. If the gauge is always showing empty, it's most likely a problem with the sending unit in the fuel tank. Check the resistance across the two terminals of the sending unit.

On a C900, the fuel sender level unit is separate from the fuel pump and located on the right side top of the tank, accessible by removing the trunk floor lift up panel (the pump is located on the left side top of the tank.
Possible problems are: electrical line off or broken, float not working (it's fairly delicate); or gauge not working.

Test the resistance of the sending unit with the lines disconnected, the resistance should be 2.6 to 3.8 ohms full tank, 63.3 to 67.5 ohms empty tank; and test for voltage across the top of the sender unit, if no voltage, that's likely the problem!

If the gauge is otherwise reading accurately (showing 'full' for a full tank, etc) then the problem is likely a gauge malfunction and can be simply replaced.

Good luck!
