How To Fix Your Fuel Gauge


Recommended Posts

This is how I fixed my fuel gauge. For a long time it never read correctly. When I filled it up it would read 3/4 . And when fully empty I would have to wait for the light to come on to know. When I pulled the sending unit from the tank to rewire it last week I cleaned the electronic slide that is attached to the float. Simple. I wrapped a small bolt with wet sandpaper and lightly cleaned the slide area. Now it makes full contact and today was the first time I have seen it read full in a long time. Sorry for the blurry pic., I was a little hammered that night.It looked focused to me then.



Sandpaper is pointing to the silver slide area to sand clean. It was black before I cleaned it. Years of bouncing around in there. Hope this helps someone.
