With full tank of gas the gauge go's full for a couple days then around half a tank the gauge reads empty 1993 voyager


It sounds like the sending unit has a dead spot on it causing it to read inaccurately. The tank would have to be dropped and the sending unit replaced. Check out this page and illustration to better understand what's going on. "How a fuel gauge works"

Fuel gauge stuck on full


pos lead is used to measure ground...that means that the power goes through the fuel level sending unit and the ground lowers the power out from the unit....I would replace the fuel level sending unit.

Fuel gauge not working on alfa gtv 1998


Sounds as though the tank sensor is faulty. Access through top of petrol tank, note the wiring colours and position. Lift out and check condition of float and the rheostat wiring and slider. Get a replacement from EB spares
