Crazy fuel sender?
Posted 10 October 2011 - 09:02 AM
So I put gas in after work.. $15 worth was about 3.9 Gal.. So that brings it up from the peg to 1/4 and I'm thinking that can't be right?
And while driving home I noticed it went down a little bit but then came back up.. I was thinking about pulling the assembly and testing the fuel sender.. From what I hear a full tank should be about 1 MegaOhm and I forget what the lower end should be.

Last week I set the needle on the peg then drove to work and back two more times. Only took 13 gallons to fill it. I have noticed though that the needle on the wagon comes down form full much sooner than my sedan ever did. Going by the gauge, (which is pointless) I typically only get 40 miles out of that first "quarter".
My sedan does at least 60 miles of the same type of driving to move that first "quarter".
I have some BG 44K that I'm going to pour in the wagon and maybe it will help the fuel sender. Don't know.

My 96 had a random gauge sometimes, BUT, the low fuel light is a totally different circuit. And that always came on when there was just over 2 gallons left, regardless what the gauge said. So that's nice, at least.

Since I put a full tank in and drive about the same way each week I figured around 260-280 it would start to show the low fuel light.
