    08 RXTX Fuel Gauge Problem

    Out on the lake Saturday and ran out of gas with 3 bars of fuel showing. Put 5 gallons in and gauge is showing over half a tank. The good part is fuel fixed the running problem and got me home.

    Has any body had this problem and know of a fix or do I just have a bad sending unit.

    i would guess your float valve is the problem. you can try to see if its hung up/stuck or bend it a bit and see if that helps. gL

    The flote is not hung up because when I put 5 gallons in the gauge went up to over half a tank and it only had 5 gallons in it. Guess I will check all the connections to the pump assembly and it that doesnt work I will pull the pump assembly.

    The rod holding the float may have a bend in it causing the gauge to read wrong!

    sounds like I will be pulling the pump assembly for a look.
