    if you had a gas leak the service/check engine light would be on, also you would smell raw gas fumes, what is the engine size, what type of driving do u do? do you keep the tires inflated to 34 PSI? when on the highway what is the average speed you travel? all these factors affect MPG, speed and engine size being the most significant followed by tire pressure.

My fuel gage indicator does not work


The level sensor is inside the gas tank. A mechanic will need to drop the tank to work on it. Some cars can be done from above. In the meantime, find out how many mpg your car does and multiply it with the tank size. Fill your gas tank, reset your odometer. Keep an eye on the miles you drive and fill up before it reaches the max mileage.

Gas gauge works sometime but always shows full


Sometimes you can use resistors, a couple of different sizes, see if gage reacts properly to resistors, if it does, the problem is the sending unit in gas tank.

Hello, I'm Donnie.

It sounds like you have a faulty, " fuel level sensor ".

I have a 94 chevy s10 and my gas reads empty while i drive.but when i shut off the truck the gauge moves to different readings.


Is......the problem--"the gas gage reads empty when there is fuel in the tank. OR, The gage moves when the key to turned off ?

If it's the first,
You will need to test the gage and through process of elimination, determin if the Sending unit inside the fuel tank has gone Bad.

If its the second ? - Electrical gauges will move when powered down. Normal

Testing the gauge may not be easy - just depends on your ability.
It is a simple 2-wire gauge circuit, when disconnect (usually need the fuel tank) the gage reads in one direction (either full or empty)
then when shorted-the gage reads in oppisite direction.

Of course you must select the correct wires or you may short out the wrong circuits!! Most GM vehicles use a purple wire & black wire.

A quick method I have used to check the in-take part of the gauge is this.
1st. know there is gas - 1/2 tank works best.
2nd driver's door open, key in run position, engine not running.
3rd gently lift up on the door then let if come back down, gently.
just enough to cause the gas to slosh around.
4th - keep an eye on the gas gage, a bad sending unit in the take will show up as a "twitchy" needle.

Of course, if the gage never leaves empty - sloshing won't work.
I have a known good sending unit I can plug into the vehicle and simulate different levels of fuel - if the gas gage works, I know the problem is in the tank.

Let us know.
