  1. Okay I have a 1995 Legacy L Wagon. My question is are the fuel gauges on Subaru's not accurate? My owners manual says I should have a 15 gal tank. When I first got the car the previous owner told me not to let is get close to E. So the first full tank down to little less than 1/4 I filled it up and only got 8 gals in the tank. So knowing I average 21mpg I reset my trip and would drive to 280 miles as that should still leave me gas in the tank. Well today I'm driving around and the gas gauge is below 1/4 but above E and I've got about 265 miles on the trip...well the car slows down and dies. Can't restart. Ran it out of fuel. Is my gauge wrong or do I only have a 10gal tank?
  2. So, I spent the day building a gas tank guard/rear slider setup for my EA81 wagon. Wondering if anyone else has done anything to protect the tank? For as much as I see built wheeler Subarus, I always wonder about gas tank vulnerability. I also wanted to build slider bars so that big rocks don't hang up the rear when walking off them. I wil try to post pics once the paint dries......just wondering if anyone else has done a gas tank skid plate?
  3. How does one change a fuel filter (not the one under the hood) in a 87 subi 3door?
  4. I have a customer (actually a couple of customers) that is/are having an issue with getting the tank to fill. This is an 03 forester 2.5 sohc. When they go to fill up the pump keeps cutting off like the tanks full. I did a quick filler neck swap ( a good used one) and it has the same issue. Could it be a vent hose that isn't letting the tank pressure vent? Any help is much appreciated.
  5. WTB: Thought I'd bump this up to a single thread. Looking for a 1978 Gen 1 4WD wagon gas tank with a sending unit. Email me directly at david.j.stancil at gmail.com. Willing to pay for shipping. I'm located in Tucson, AZ. Hoping someone on these boards might be able to help. Any info on where I might find one of these bad mamas you would find me forever in your Subaru debt.
