What I would do is fill the gas tank all the way up. Note the cost of the fuel and the amount of gallons it took to fill it. Clear your trip meter so that it is on zero. then run the vehicle for a day or two (depending on how far you drive each day) then refill the tank , note the mileage that you had travelled and divide the mileage that you had gone into the number of gallons it took to fill the vehicle the second time. You now have a estimate of the miles per gallon. Just keep track of the miles you have driven after that.
Whether or not a march fuel gauge will fit a B13 tank depends on the size of the march gauge. You should be able to find a march gauge that will fit on a B13 tank.
why won't my gas gauge work all the time.it will read full when i fill it but after that as i drive i am not sure how much gas is in the tank
Fill your tank, calculate the miles to the next service station, and see how many gallons you need to re-fill the tank.
signal from the sensor inside the tank to the gauge
A #16 AWG will work.
The fuel tank pressure sensor is for the EVAP system. It has nothing to do with the fuel gauge sending unit.
If the gas gauge is not reading there is possibly a short somewhere between the fuel tank and the gauge or the gauge itself is broken. I have found that in most cases the sending unit in the tank has failed.
check for a damaged fuel tank
GAUGE IN DASH OR ITS VOLTAGE REGULATOR IS BAD. WIRING OR CIRCUIT BOARD. UNIT IN TANK. FLOAT IN TANK HAS SUNK. dISCONNECT GAUGE AT TANK AND GROUND THE WIRE-THAT SHOULD CAUSE GAUGE TO GO TO FULL HOT. MOST CAR GAUGES WORK THE SAME WAY.
no it is not required if the pump is in the tank
check for broken wire from fuel sender unit in fuel tank to gauge. check fuel sender unit for proper operation. float may be stuck in the tank then check fuel gauge
A bad sending unit in the gas tank.
Bad sending unit in the fuel tank.
Your gauge could be bad but sometimes the floats in the gas tank get holes in them and fill with gas. this causes the float to stay at the bottom and your gauge to read empty. U might also check the wiring from the sender at the fuel tank to the gas gauge itself.
you need to bring it to me Bailey_grizzle@yahoo.com i was told not to tell
A faulty fuel gauge sending unit located inside the fuel tank would be the most common reason
Most likely either a bad float in the fuel tank or defective gauge
Bad gauge or stuck float in tank
sending unit bad on top of fuel tank
The sending unit inside the fuel tank is failing.
The most likely problem is with the sending unit. The fuel sending unit is mounted inside of the gas tank, and sends a signal to the fuel gauge showing how much gas is left in the tank.
The gauge itself is in the instrument cluster; it is the sending unit that is in the tank. Between the two is wiring and a fuse which should be checked before condemning the gauge or sending unit. jb
The gauge could be bad, the fuel gauge sending unit in the gas tank as part fo the fuel pump could be bad you could have a bad ground wire you could have a broken wire in the harness runnign from the fuel tank to the gauge.
The gas gauge and fuel pump are on two separate circuits tand both go inside the gas tank. The gas gauge usesf a float that moves a resistor according to fuel level. Gas gauges. When you experiewnce the gas gauge not working at all I would look for a disconection external to the tank first. If you cna send six volts from the tank sender to the gauge this should cause the gauge to read. If it does then you know the problem is with the sending unit and it must be removed from the tank to repair or replace.
The fuel gauge gets a reading from the fuel level sender in your fuel tank. There is a float attached to a lever floating on the fuel. The lever moves ( as the fuel is depleted or refilled) along a variable resistor in the sending unit. The guage detects the variance in resistance, telling you how much fuel is in the tank.
