I assume you mean the aux fuel tank,then the fuel pump is most likely bad.

Exmark lzs749akc724a1,uses 2-4 gal of gas then will sometimes shut down. Fuel gauge shws empty but has a 12 gal tank will only take 3-4 gal.

Fix or replace the fuel gage sending unit in the tank. Pull it out and bend the tang/rod of the sending unit up and away from the bottom of the tank. Apparently the gauge is connected to the electrical and when gets to the E on the gage will shut down. Its a manual/physical problem overriding the good electrics of the system.

My gas gague is not working. I just bought the car. I don't know how many miles per gallon my honda passport 99 V6 4x4 takes HELP

Google the models tank capacity, it is likely 15-20 gals, then do the same for the EPA and any other reputable sources, a forum etc of personal experiences too, . Fill it then go by the most conservative of estimates for mileage averages and minus 5 mpg the 1st time to be safe!, then when you have a 100 or so miles left aprox, go refill it and note usage and miles actually traveled by you. this may vary due to hwy vs city type driving and if your week to weeek habits are common or mixed up with any degree of hwy/city usage being predominate, thus affecting your numbers, after a bit you will say, 200 miles and its time or 250 miles etc, cant hurt to have a buffer, its better to keep a car filled as less condensation can occur which in empty tanks will happen more than with full tanks, it may be a fuse, worth checking, but the sending unit may be part of the fuel pump in the tank or pre pump, some cars use both setups.

Fuel gauge doesn't work. went on vacation and left nissan parked with all but empty fuel tank. When I returned and filled up, the gauge wouldn't register. Stuck???

Hit the top of the dash with your hand. if not you will have to check the wiring before you can tell if it is the fuel gauge or sender in the tank. This is not a commen problem.

Filled truck up with fuel and fuel guage stoped working

There is a TSB for this issue ( TSB 08-2-9 ).

The problem is high sulfur content fuel will cause a problem with the fuel level sending unit, and cause it to read incorrectly.

The 2 times I had this happen, I was not at my normal brand fuel ( had it happen with Shell fuel both times ).

I fueled at 1/2 tank with my normal brand, and then after another 1/2 tank fueled again, and the problem went away.

If you want, the TSB lists new revision fuel level senders, that you can drop the fuel tank, and replace your exiting one with to cure the problem.

The correct P/N depends on your truck cab & bed config, and options

Petrol gauge was working fine before a 5 week holiday. Car not used during this time. Now petrol gauge shows tank empty, even after I had filled the tank. What is wrong? How do you fix this?

sounds like the float is either got a hole in it and is full of fuel, or the whole float assembly is seized in the empty position.
was the car left for 5 weeks empty of fuel?

Why can i only fit 13 gallons in my 19 gallon gas tank on my 2002 jeep wrangler sport 4.0

You can usually only get about 18 gallons in a 19 gallon tank and you likely have 4 gallons left in it when the gauge reads empty
