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+

Chevrolet Corvette Fuel Level Sensor Failure
Chevrolet Corvette Problem
Average Mileage: 50,903 mi (7,500 mi - 110,000 mi)
Engine would die while driving, sometimes it didnt start, all lights work when trying to start it , you can hear the starter trying to turn the engine but nothing, battery is new so I assume its ok,,then just ran fine till this happen again,, cheked the fuel pressure and nothing! There was no gas getting to engine, so by then I knew my problem was a fuel related problem,, my dad gave some hits to the tank and then pushed the car up and down from the trunk while I was starting the car, then boom! It started again,, we knew by then there was a problem with the fuel pump , so we now have to replace it,,

The gas gauge in my 2010 Corvette simply stopped working. First the dealership reset the gauge and about a week or so later the gauge stopped working again. Then the dealership replaced the sending unit within the pontoon tank. Within about a month the gauge again stopped working again. This time the dealership consulted with engineers in Bowling Green and it was recommended that the entire fuel system be removed and replaced. Both pontoon gas tanks and their sensor assemblies were removed and replaced. The problem has not occurred again but I have had several other continuing electrical problems with the vehicle including the rear trunk button needing replacement, the vehicle not recognizing either key fob and now the warning light for my air bags intermittently (about 90% of the time) lighting on my dashboard.

The sending unit doesn't have to be replaced, they just need a bottle of Techtron and it fixes the issue.

Same as reports that I am reading. Mine started at around 32K miles an then quite until 60k miles... Same symtoms as all reports...gives error messages than returns to normal...But lately it is occurring more frequently...have reported to Chevrolet Technical an opened a case #..Seems this is common with C5,C6 & C7 models.. I do not understand why Chevrolet does not do something about these faulty sensors other than trying to make you pay 2500 to 4500 for repair of THEIR choice of a faulty product..

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.
