Flushed by the success of fixing the fuel pump and seeing the fuel gauge sender unit sitting tantalisingly close to it, I've now started to think about the accuracy of the gauge. When the tank is full, the gauge reads "full". When it is about a third full, it reads "running on fumes". I can cope with it, but it would be nice for it to be a bit more realistic lower down in the range. The only reference I can find is in Rick Astley's book (P148) which states the resistance range at the extremes of the float's range. I'll take the sender unit out of the tank when it is close to empty. If it's in range, all I can think of is to bend the float arm down a bit.
All thoughts would be welcome.
