Question about Volkswagen Beetle
Typical for concerns such as yours would be the sending unit inside the tank. In some cases, it would just be a connector that has been disengaged, loose or corroded, often however, it would be the internal float and the position sensor. A quick temporary workaround is to use carb/injector cleaner to be poured inside your fuel tank. It is intended to clean the fuel system from the tank to the injectors and in so doing also cleans the sensor. Of course the correct procedure would be to bring down the tank, remove the sending unit and physically clean the inside or replace.
In some instances, it could be the actual gauge that is faulty or the gauge is missing IGN B+12.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
