Actually the 150 miles till empty is just an estimate by the trip computer, and doesn't really mean that there is anything wrong.

The computer's estimate may be off and there's nothing wrong with the vehicle.

Impala 2010 Fuel Guage is on Empty when it should have approximately half a tank? On dash where it says how many miles till empty is blank spaces?


Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop . Take's special tools to diagnose . Could be the sending unit inside the fuel tank or the gauge is bad . The sending unit is an input to the PCM - engine computer which send the info. to the insturment cluster via a serial data network . Could be any number of thing's causing it not to work . hooking up a factory scan tool an view data is the best way to diagnose this problem .

How do i measure amount of fuel in tank when fuel gauge is not working


Suggest you take this to certified mechanic as you have to remove the tank to get to a float that controls your gauge. Any other method of measuring is dangerous. There is the mileage method where you keep track of of the mileage you have driven on a log sheet. That is old fashioned gas gauge though.

Town and Country Van running out of gas and guage says half a tank what could be the problem?


If your fuel gauge is showing you in accurate readings this is normal to all vehicles that are not used to fill-up gas full regularly but sometimes the cause of the inacuracy is due to faulty float valve in the gas tank you need to replace it

Fuel gage showing half a tank but trip computer only registering 60 miles left


Its very simple. If the gauge is showing half full then fill the tank and see how much fuel it takes. If the amount you add is approximately 50 percent of the fuel tank capacity then you know the fuel gauge is accurate . In that case the computer is giving an inaccurate reading and should be ignored. All you need is an accurate fuel gauge - it does not matter a row of beans what the computer says if the fuel gauge is reading correctly.

Why does my 2002 SC430 gas gauge needle not work when tank is full?


The sending unit in gas tank is broken - hence the wrong readings of how much gas is in the tank. Replace unit.

1987 fuel level guage issue 87 F150 Lariat XLT 5.0 2wd. Have a very similar situation. Front tank position shows empty even when I know there is gas. Rear tank position shows full after refilling but...


the gas is regulated from the switching valve you control off the dash. Check the valve to hear it switch
have a friend help you do this. it will be located under the truck between the two tanks. You may have a faultly valve or switch rattling inside changing the tanks setting also while driving which will be hard to tell
