Question about 2000 Ford Focus
My 2001 Ford Focus check engine light with diagnostic trouble code PO460, Fuel Level Sensor? What does that mean and what can be done about it?
P0460 Code - Fuel
Level Sensor Circuit Malfunction.
I'm not sure what you mean by you mixed gas, does that mean you switched to a different station or octane level? Does the gas gauge still work fine? As long as it works fine you could keep driving for a few more tanks to see if the problem goes away. If you overfill or run the tank too low it can cause issues with the fuel sender.
When the pump clicks off, you're done filling. Though at 175K miles the fuel sender could just have gone bad. If you start to see symptoms then take it into the shop definitely. About the only thing you could do prior to that is if you're comfortable you could use a digital volt ohm meter (DVOM) and measure the sensor readings at the tank (at the electrical connections).
