SOURCE: FUEL GAUGE AND LIGHT STAYS ON NEARLY EMPTY AFTER PUTTTING IN PETROL.WHATS THE MOST LIKLY FAULT. DODGY GAUGE OR FLOAT IN PETROL TANK.THANKS FLYNN.

Do you mean that the gauge registers as empty, even after the tank is filled? Probably the sending unit needs to be replaced (it's in the tank, likely partially attached to the fuel pump).

SOURCE: Faulty Petrol Gauge

Hi there,
It could be 2 things:
1. the fule sender unit is faulty
2. one of the baffles inside the tank has come loose and is interfering with the float.
Either case you'll have to pull the float out to have a look. If you are doing it yourself, make sure youtake great care as you'll be dealing with fuel and this is a high risk work.
cheers.

You either have a bad sending unit in your gas tank, a bad guage, or bad wiring from the sending unit to the guage.

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?

On the diesel engine TD5 it is mounted in the engine compartment, you cannot miss it.
On the petrol engine V8 it is mounted on the fuel pump inside the fuel tank,
Hope this helps
