Hello there:
from the sounds of it you have a bad float or a bad fuel sending unit you may also may need to replace the fuel gauge would start with the fuel sending unit and the float first then move on to the fuel gauge and this solve the problem.....best of luck to you and hope this helps

My polo 1.4 se's fuel gauge has sat on 3 quarters for 3 days now, not normal with the amount of driving I do daily, what could be causing the problem? It changes a bit when on a slope though


Hi Josh:
I'd start by completely filling the fuel tank.
Since you know how far you usually can go on a full tank, when you have gone about alf that distance, the gauge should show about half a tank, and when you've gone just over 3/4 of that distance, the gauge should be starting to show on the low side.
At least, if you know that the gauge is not reading correctly, you won't run out of gas if you keep track of the distance and always fill the tank completely.
Hope this helps.

I have an et2 vespa i put a bit of 98 ron fuelin the tank it ran for about 3 kms then konked out now it wont even start


the Vespa ET2 50 has a two-stroke engine which needs an oil mixture in the gasoline. There are 2 (two) tanks under the seat: 1 is for gasoline and the other for 2T-oil.
If you dont't fill that oil tank the engine will run dry after a couple of miles and the bearings in the motor blow up.
Then you need a complete rebuild of the engine which costs a lot.

Why does the fuel light stay on


WHAT DTC\'s are set???



It sounds like a short to ground on the gauge circuit but see below for further and better diagnosis:



When the ignition switch is ON the fuel gauge is connected to 12 VDC, current flows through the gauge and the variable resistor in the fuel gauge sending unit to ground. The sending unit float controls the amount of resistance in the variable resistor. Malfunctioning fuel gauges may be the result of a fuel gauge sender or a fuel gauge not being properly grounded OR there may be a defect in the fuel gauge sender or in the fuel gauge itself OR there may be an open circuit caused by a loose or disconnected connection or a broken wire between the ignition switch to the fuel gauge.



A suspect fuel gauge system can be tested by FIRST removing the gauge and grounding the Y/W wire of the fuel gauge sender located at the bottom of the gauge, turning the ignition switch ON at which point the fuel gauge must indicate FULL. And if it does so then the fuel gauge is functioning correctly.And if it does not read FULL then get a multimeter set to the RX1 scale and measure the resistance of the sending unit by placing one of the meter probes on the Y/W wire and the other probe on a good ground. THEN for FLHT/C/U, FLTR if thefuel tank is full the meter reading should be 7-14 ohms and if the tank is empty the meter resistance reading should be 74-95 ohms resistance and a half full tank meter resistance reading will be approximately 30-38 ohms. For FLHR/C/S if the fuel tank is full, the meter resistance reading should be 27-40 ohms, if the tank is empty 240-264 ohms and if half full approximately 97-118 ohms. FOR ALL MODELS if there is a very high meter resistance or infinity reading the sender may be "open" or not grounded. In this case check to see if the sender and fuel tank are grounded by placing one of the ohmmeter probes on the flange of the sender and the other probe on crankcase and if the ground is good the meter must indicate one ohm or less and if the reading is one ohm or less the sender is defective and requires replacement and if a higher resistance reading is obtained you will need to check for a poor ground wire. THEN you can check the voltage to the O/W (+) wire and the BK (-) wire of the fuel gauge connector if the gauge did not indicate FULL and the correct reading will depend on the source voltage and the level of fuel in the tank or the position of the sender float arm on the variable resistor etc. If there is NO battery voltage present there may be a broken, highly corroded or disconnected power wire. If you cannot find a problem using the above testing replace the gauge itself.

Vespa px200 won't start


1) did you pull the choke (under fuel tap) ?
2) did you fill gasoline (+ 2% oil mix)?
3) if that does not help get a new spark plug
4) push-start the Vespa in 2nd gear with clutch pulled and let the clutch go after you reach a certain speed (easier downhill)

I have problem with gazoline meter for my car when i fill full completly full it read only half ?


the float switch is inside the gas tank and is probably defective. the float is also part of the fuel pump assembly and will require you to buy a fuel pump assembly.

I have just bought a 1988 vespa px 125 under the seat there is 2 holes one for the petrol and one that says oil ive put 2 stroke oil in the oil tank and petrol in the petrol tank today i hit 50 and the...


older Vespas without separate Oil-tanks need a premix of 1:50 oil in the gasoline - but yours is an automatic oil-mixer type.
check the oil-level-glass under the seat near the choke.
it must be full of oil - the oil tank can hold about 1 liter of 2-stroke oil. How much oil did you fill in?
Probably the previous owner removed the oil supply tube and filled always an oil-gasoline premix. You better ask him about it. If the tube was removed then there was no oil supplied to your engine and it got stuck and the engine bearings are blown.

My vespa lx 125 ie is having problems starting, what could this be?


Hi, Josmerriman9 and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or have an improper gap or are partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition.
3. Battery damaged or nearly discharged, should have 12.5 volts.
4. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Throttle controls not adjusted correctly.
6. Water or dirt in the fuel system.
7. Water or dirt in the carburetor.
8. Faulty fuel pump.
9. Intake air leak.
10. Fuel tank vent hose and vapor valve plugged, or fuel line closed off, restricting fuel flow.
11. Enricher valve inoperative.
12. Engine lubricant to heavy (winter operation).
13. Ignition is not functioning properly (possible sensor failure).
14. Faulty ignition coil.
15. Valves sticking.

Fuel Gauge not working


The switch that you use to change tanks is probably faulty - the switch supplies power for the sending unit in the tank, and to the transfer switch for the gas lines - use a meter to check it
