  • Fuel System: Fuel gauge

    I am having problems with the fuel gauge. I changed the sending unit on to get a 1/2 tank reading on the gauge. Is there a procedure I should do to check the gauge? Are there ohms to be checked? Thank you in advanced to and info offered.

    More information would help. What year and model of the vehicle. The ohms of the gauge and sending unit
    have to match. What do you mean "to get a 1/2 tank reading"

        With an Avanti, the first thing to check is for good grounds throughout the system that you are working on. The second thing is that the float may no longer be floating properly.

          What Part Number replacement Sending Unit did you use?
          The Length and angle of the Float Wire or Rod is what controls how full it will read. That is assuming you have the correct OHM and Fit Sending Unit.

              Jerry, Stewart-Warner fuel senders will read 33 Ohms full and 240 Ohms empty. The big trick is getting the float arm adjusted correctly. Be sure you have a good ground.
