The sending unit is probably bad,and sounds like it will need to be replaced.

It might be the fuel sending unit. It usually plugs in to the pump.

Does an xh ute have the same fuel gauge for gas and petrol. When I change to gas my fuel gauge drops to empty????


Don't know the vehicle at all, but perhaps the gas (I assume you mean something like lpg) gague is sharing the same power set up, ie when switch to gas, the power or sensor wires are then redirected elsewhere, so the fuel gague drops off, till returning to petrol.

See this scenario on a couple of lpg cars here in uk. All lpg cars I've seen do not share a gague though.

While I am driving my fuel gauge will drop to empty and then back to right spot. This makes the "ding ding" noise like I am low fuel. It seems to do it when I am half full to full range. Its real annouying


The Variable resistor in the fuel gague sender unit is worn down, which happens to all vehicles over time. Just replace it, and you should be fine.

Fuel gage problem


The fuel guage sensor must have gone bad. It is located near the fuel pump in the fuel tank.

Full tank-fuel gague registers empty-need fuel light is on


There is a sending unit in the fuel tank that registers how much fuel there is. It is probably broken, giving you a funny reading on your gauge.
