Fuel gauge reads empty


most fuel gauges will tell you you are empty when the is only 25 to 50 miles of fuel left. if it stops after filling with gas then you are ok, just don't let it go below a 1/4 tank. If it always reads empty the the problem is probably the float in the tank needs to be replaced. You will need to have a mechanic replace it. check several places for costs.

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

worth checking the fuel tank for holes or there might be some fuel delivery pipes leaking badly. Or it might be an O2 sensor not giving correct signal to ecu thus consuming so much fuel.

Fuel gauge registers only half full after fill up. Replaced sensor, fuel pump sending unit and instrument gauges. BMW Z 4. 2003


There is nothing else to replace ... presuming you did everything correctly and the replacement parts were not faulty, I suggest you live with it. Keep track of the miles you drive and fill up when you have driven about 1/2 the estimated miles per tank for best results. I.E.: you get 10 MPG - your tank is 20 gallons = 200 miles per tank ... fill up every 100 or so miles.

OR

You could take it to the BMW place and let them fix it.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

i would check wires leading to tank sounds like you have a bad connection or possiably a bad ground wire if connection s look good and your getting good ground more than likely you have a bad sending unit in the tank

Kia Sorento fuel gauge prob.


What I do is go by miles per gallon and fill the tank when I've driven enough for it to drop. As long as the odometer works it's all good. You can fix it if you want to go to the trouble. It's either a bad card in the tank module or a resistor fell off in the instrument panel.
Panels can be refluxed just like motherboards by tossing it in the oven for a few seconds. Tank modules have to be replaced.

the fuel gauge sending unit in the gas tank is a mechanical part, but you may have an electrical problem. the needle is moved by an electrical signal. you can check the wires coming out of the back of the gauge, one will run to a chassis ground. make sure that wire has a good connection to ground, first because it won't work right without it and second because it's lots easier than the next thing you will have to do if that doesn't make an improvement. if you see no difference after checking the ground then you need to drop the tank and replace the fuel level sending unit. you will have to remove the fuel pump to get to it so you might want to replace it while you have it out, that's your call. your vehicle is new enough that the decision would be more based on miles than age. hope that helps

Best to chk. all connections, sounds like a poor ground either buy the tank, or in the dash. It also could be a fulty sending unit or flote in the tank.
