It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.Google+

When you get down to a 1/4 tank you better fill up because your empty. Learned the hard way.

When it's cold outside the gauge shows there is no gas in the tank but when it warms up then it starts working. Haven't had the problem fixed yet.

Fuel gauge reads about 1/8-1/4 tank lower than actual level. Low fuel warning comes in at expected gauge reading but again the gauge reads incorrectly low. I know the gauge reads low due to the amount of fuel I can add now at a particular fuel level reading compared to how it once was.

The fuel gauge wont read correctly. Some times it is pegged and sometimes its somewhere in between. Today it worked correctly but the Voltmetter did not. It was pegged. Any ideas?

erratic fuel gage started acting up during record hot weather, maybe unrelated. mechanic recommended changing sensor and fuel pump even though mileage is low
