It's not going to be a filter issue.
Most likely, you have a sending unit or the gauge itself that has failed. It is not uncommon for the sending unit to fail rather than having an issue witht he gauge or the wiring itself but without testing the component I can't tell you with any degree of certainty which component of the fuel gauge system has failed. I can however, assure you it is not caused by a clogged fuel filter.

Look on the bright side, you'll never run out because you always have a half a tank. Now is it half full or half empty?

This could be the instrument cluster or more likely the sending unit has gone bad. The sending unit is located in the tank and is part of the fuel pump assembly. It is a fairy intensive job. A normal shop will charge around 600-700 dollars to fix this. It may be easier to reset the mileage counter every time you fill up and then always fill up before the 250 mile marker. I hope this helps!

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

2002 Chevy Suburban: Fuel gauge reads empty, tank is half full


Youre gauge is controlled by a plunger in the fuel tank which is attached to the sensor and the fuel gauge. it sounds like when the plunger goes down half way its either getting stuck down lower then it should. Needs replacing. Any mechanic can do this install for you.

Fuel gauge quit working. stuck on half a tank. is there a fuse for just the gauge? do fuel tanks even have floats in them anymore?vor do i just need a new gauge?


the fuel level sending unit has been incorporated into the fuel pump assembly.
the fuel pump is most likely your problem, these pumps dont like fuel additives so be careful.
most common problem with these fuel gauges is the sending unit, the sender contacts will errode over time fuel additives seem to speed the process.

replace the fuel pump assembly

hope this helps

If all the other gauges are working, then it is definately the sending unit. Mine is out at the moment and has been all summer. Pain in the **** to fix so haven't yet. Have to know however cause the fuel pump went out. Gonna kill 2 birds with 1 stone. We have just been using the digital reader for fuel used to know how much gas is in it. The gas gauge will bounce between half and full but never go below half.
