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+

on trip to Memphis with 2007 corvette base coupe...when the service fuel system ..low fuel error appeared////made me PANIC BIG TIME....so I ran a few red lights trying to get to a gas station...then realized when looking at the trip miles that I proberly had a half tank of gas left???? Filled tank and error conditions disappeared...Told service advisor an explained that I may have a Fuel sensor going out?? I am now at 72000 miles an this problem has surfaced again... comes an goes with each tank of gas ...We have used BG fuel additives provided from my dealership an the problems disappears for a week or two an then returns... I don't want to put 2 to 4 THOUSAND dollars into the 7year old high milege vet...Was told they have to remove rear axle to get to fuel PUMPS and sensors?? DUMB DESIGN...good for Chevy to make money.....Please let me know if any alternatives out there

My fuel sensor either went out or is doing what it did before. I had a diagnostics test run and Sensor B has the problem. It reads "Service Fuel System" on the dash and shows empty on the fuel gauge. This actually happened miles back. Not sure how many, but probably when I had it in the 35,000 miles range (but can't remember). I drove a few weeks on it, and then it started working again.
