It is common for the sending unit to read the fuel level incorrectly. This is due to a defective module. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump and sending unit replaced because the module is currently not offered separately from the pump and sending unit.Google+

I had the issue of no turn over when cranking on the first try about every 20 stats if the car was on a hill. One day it just did not turn over for anything when I was going home from work. I had it towed to the dealer and needed a new fuel pump assembly. When I had asked them about the erratic fuel readings before I got an inconclusive answer. It took a new pump to fix this at 112000 miles.
