Fiesta fuel gauge massively over-reading

Recommended Posts

So this morning I filled my 63 reg Titanium up, full tank, then started the drive from Essex to Manchester. About 100 miles in I noticed the fuel gauge was still showing full, which it does not usually do (this is a regular trip for me). The computer tripometer thing was off as well, started off saying 407 miles to zero; 100 miles in it had gone up to 410 miles to zero!

By the end of the 220 mile journey the fuel gauge had moved and was showing about two thirds of a tank which seems way too much.

Never had any issues like this with the car before, any ideas what's going on..?

Anyone..? What I’m worried about is running out of fuel when the gauge is telling me I’ve got half a tank left (which it’s doing at the moment!)... is that a possibility??
