Fuel gauge / range meter

I have a 2006 Hyundai Sonata. When I fill the tank the gauge reads a little over 1/2 full and the range meter states 221 miles till empty. What could be the problem?

Actually I had that problem, its a faulty fuel sensor, and can be replaced under warranty. at first they had me unplug a fuse while the car was running then shut it off and plug it in then start the car. did that for 2 more fillups b4 they finally replace the faulty sensor.

Tank empty, gauge reads 1/4, tank full, gauge reads full, tank 1/4 full, gauge reads 1/2. Engine off, gauge reads below empty. Any ideas will be welcome.


The values differ in all types of cars. Older cars peg out at 90 ohms. Newer cars range between 0 and about 400 ohms. Dis-connect the connector at the sender. Ground the sender wire and the gage should read empty. un ground and it should read full. They use a ceramic resistor in the tank that usually go bad.

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.

I thought I had filled the tank, as it had clicked off at the bowser, the fuel gauge said full. But when I checked how much fuel i had remaining it said only 398 km. What do I do? Is it safe to drive?


I hope I'm reading this right, if you just filled up it means you have 398 km till your empty, or approx 240 miles, to adjust use the trip button to reset trip meter
