    2013 yamaha fx ho fuel guage question

    I bought my 13 yamaha fx a few months back used and it only had 15 hours on it, practically brand new. No problems whatsoever until I notice a couple days ago that my fuel guage drops 2 bars at a time. Now I can't say that I'm 100% that it wasn't doing before but I know it is now. I'm reading full 8 bars and look down 5 min later and dropped down 2. It does take a while to drop down each two bars but when I get to the last 2 bars I'm keeping the dock in eyesight, which sucks. Was wondering if anyone has heard of this issue within the recent past. Thanks

    That's the way they are........always have dropped two bars at a time. My 2012 FXHO is the same......stays on full for ages ......stays on half for next to no time at all. They do seem to be consistent though, with plenty of fuel left when the buzzer goes off. Get to know how much fuel is left when you get down to 1/4 tank & then when the buzzer goes off.....that will give you more confidence in the sort of distance you have to travel before it gets critical.

    Thanks for the info... I still haven't gotten the low fuel audible alarm but I'll be sure to test it and see next outing.
