The float inside the fuel tank that measures how much fuel is in the tank needs to be replaced. The unit will register 8 OHMS if its any good off the wire leading from it when its at the full position

If my gas gauge doesnt work can it just be a fuse


Doubt it.
The same fuse for the gauge would handle the rest of the cluster.
Probably the sending unit in the tank.

What would cause the the instrument pannel voltage regulator to fail on a 66 mustang? The gauges do not work mow.


It's called a CVR, constant voltage regulator, to keep all gauges with same voltage all the time, regardless of spikes. They seldom fail. I did not think we used one back in 66, but I did not start working for Ford until 1975. I would replace it and seee what happens. Let me know.

I sounds like you have an electrical problem with the dashboard. It will have to be pulled and checked.

I had the same problem with the gas tank on my 95 mustang. You are going to have to drop the tank. There is a rubber seal where the filler neck goes into the gas tank that has failed and must be replaced. You are losing even more gas than you think. Everytime you make a left turn gas is sloshing out through that bad seal.

My gas gauge is stuck on full in my 2000 ford mustang


You will need to locate the wire to the fuel sending unit at the fuel tank.

Once you locate the wire, disconnect it and see if the guage goes to 'E". If the guage goes to "E", you probably have a bad sending unit.

To double check, ground the same wire to clean metal on the frame with the key in the "on" position (not running). If the guage does not move, the guage is bad. If the guage moves from E to F, the sending unit needs to be replaced.
