The fuel gauge read about 1/2 tank, then we drove about 12 highway miles and it suddenly reads less than 1/4 tank. What's up? :shock: Generally it gets the usual dismal 15 mpg but this is a bit much.

Thanks,

Tim

The fuel sender is worn out.

It's not a difficult DIY job. You can possibly fix the old sender or order a new one and install it.

The sender has two thin metal contacts that wear out over time as they move back and forth across a circuit board. I bent them back down to contact the board and, viola, I had a properly working gas gauge again.

15 MPG is pretty low? Are you doing a lot of city driving? I'm getting ~17.5 driving in NJ/NYC.
