Fuel sender wire is being earthed. this will give full tank and the display saying wrong KM as the both run on same voltage.

The electrician could be right, I too am an electrician, and my best guess for this is the wireing, make sure all wires leading to and from are in tip top shape. Any electrician can do this, Kragen does it for free I think, and Auto Zone might do it too. But it could be a ground wire, i had a similar situation but it was with my fuel pump. ground wire was worn and lost continuity.

Definitely the gauge can be changed, provided the float in the fuel tank is OK, i.e. no leaks. This float connects to a potentiometer which records the current flowing thru it and displays it in the gauge. So before replacing the gauge measure the current and match that against the quantity of fuel in the tank...............sodeep

Testimonial: "this was helpful, part of my own suspicions and if this is from a jaguar mechanic, I would say very helpful if there is no relay involved.??"
