SOURCE: gas gauge

The float that moves the gas hand is possibly stuck in the tank. If there's isn't an access hole in the rear of the vehicle you'll have to drop the tank. Unless it becomes free on it's own. Hope this is helpful. Please rate. Thanks

SOURCE: 2002 Chevy Suburban: Fuel gauge reads empty, tank is half full

Youre gauge is controlled by a plunger in the fuel tank which is attached to the sensor and the fuel gauge. it sounds like when the plunger goes down half way its either getting stuck down lower then it should. Needs replacing. Any mechanic can do this install for you.

SOURCE: gas gauge malfunction and engine light stays on

This is a common problem with Malibu's. It is due to cheap metal in the fuel gage that corrodes. Chevrolet knows about this but they refuse to issue a fix. The check engine light staying on and the faulty fuel gage are related. This is a defect and they need to recall this part! Raise hell with the dealership!

Town and Country Van running out of gas and guage says half a tank what could be the problem?


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

Fuel gauge is not reading properly 2006 Mercury Mountaineer


Fuel gauges are not meant to be precision instruments. You might want to fill up a 2 gallon can and drive the car until it runs out of fuel to see how low the gauge will go before it's really empty. Use the 2 gallons to get back to a filling station.
I once spent three working days trying to get a 1972 Chrysler to read full when it's full, half when it's half and quarter tank when the tank has a quarter amount of fuel. The customer did not want to accept anything else, but in the end all I did was to get close, not exact.
It is possible that the fuel float in the gas tank is "drowned", that is, the plastic float might have a slow leak and some fuel found its way inside. This will cause the float to submerge slightly and give you a low reading. To check this you will have to remove the float unit from the tank.
In any case, if you feel up the job (not easy) remove the float unit from the tank and manually move it up and down while checking the meter reading. You can bend the wire holding the float to correct misreadings.
Personally, I wouldn't bother, just be aware that when the reading is low, feel safe that you still have enough fuel to get to the next filling station.

Does bad spark plugs burn gas faster


First question is yes bad or worn plugs can burn more gas to generate the same amount of power.
Second question, you could fill up the tank and record the mileage, then fill it up again when it measures half a tank and compare.
If the gas gauge is working correctly it should take half the total number of gallons the tank holds to fill it up again. And the miles you drove divided by the number of gallons used equals your gas mileage.

We just got a 1988 Porsche and filled with 1/2 tank, there was what seemed like overflow happening - Any idea what may be the problem.


fuel tank vent could be blocked by mud/pebbles etc, not letting the gas fumes escape while your adding fuel making it overflow, check underneath the car near the fuel tank .. something to start with..
