Fuel Tank

3 posts in this topic

Hi i'm new, i'm having trouble with the fuel tank, after filling it about halfway it wouldn't let anymore through and just started pouring out and the fuel gauge is showing full and hasn't moved even though the car has been driven, any advice before i take it to be looked at.

Cheers

it could be a faulty fuel sender unit or an earthing problem on the wire to the unit causing the gauge to read full all of the time.

Hi Pumastu,

Am i understanding you right! when you put your petrol in at the fuel pump, the fuel starts pouring out onto the floor when you are about half full?. IF so this could be caused by a blockage in breather pipe from the tank. causing back pressure in the fueltank.
