It is the fuel gauge,it may not be as empty as you think,but the sending unit for the gas gauge is in the fuel tank,and it would need to be removed to replace the fuel sending unit,and it may only be available with the fuel pump assembely.

My fuel gage registers empty when I just fill with gas


Most likely it is either the fuel level sending unit attached to the fuel pump or the stand alone unit (there are two sending units, both located in the tank), or, as counter-intuitive as it seems, it could be the speedometer assembly. Personally, I lean toward the latter.

The 1990 XJ6 has been sitting for the last 2 years and now won't start. The engine turns over fine. The dash gages don't seem to operate. I filled the gas tank with 5 gallons of premium gas. HELP!!!


I wish I could give you an instant fix, but I can't. Do you have spark? If so then its either your fuel pump or the CPS, crank position sensor. If no spark then it could be your coil.

How big of gas tank is on it. {gallon wise}. And the gage shows full when you fill it up then after you have about 2-4 gallons left it drops to below the yellow line. Light comes on. Why.


ok im trying to be a mind reader now!!! what car is it????
i can tell you why the light come's on,,,its to tell you you need to fill up with gass again? in the uk we call that light the "**** he*d's light" as people dont see it then they run out of gass! stupid "A" if you realy need to know how many galls it takes just fill it up when the light comes on,,not after you have ran out of gass!

Most gauges are set up this way to give you a bit of "margin" between "e" and stuck on the road.Sometimes this is set a bit too high but adjusting it is not worth the $. Additionally, there is generally about a gallon of fuel remaining in tank that the pump cannot reach. This protects you against most heavy debris (rust etc) and water that acumulates there (even in the most well maintained vehicles) which would otherwise easily enter the fuel system. As long as you are not running out at 1/4 tank or anything, you are OK.

Fuel Gauge reads empty, but tank IS full


the float in your gas tank seems to have water in it....water is heavier than gas, that's why gas floats on top of water....try putting something like HEAT in it to dry up the water in your tank....

Gas gage constantly says full when it's not!


Unfortunately this is most likely the fuel pump module, which includes the fuel level sensor also. This should be diagnosed more thoroughly with a scanner, a good scanner will be able to check instrument cluster separately to confirm the gage is working right,and check for trouble codes that may not light any warning lamps. Hope this helps. Rate me please.P.S. Dont use that fuel station any more.

My jeep when empty still has 6 gallons approx left with the light on, i assume the sending unit took a ****, or the float is messed up. As the 2 people above i would say the method to fix your problems is having the sending unit replaced. Which means taking the fuel tank down and replacing the sending unit which housed the fuel pump and the float/line. Not cheap.
