The fuel gauge never registers more than about 3/4 tank, but then it seems to go down correctly.
My mechanic checked the sender unit and the tank (to make sure it wasn't collapsing) and couldn't find any problem.
I even brought it to him after filling it up, and he visually checked and said it was full. When I brought it to him empty, he confirmed that it was empty.
I'm getting normal gas mileage, with no leakage.
My guess is that something is causing a sensor to detect that the tank is empty when it's not, but my mechanic's visual inspection of the empty tank seems to contradict that.
have the same problem?
