Re: gas tank/gauge mystery

what you mean "can't go past 1/4 tank"??
like you can only fill up 1/4 tank?
or you fill the entire tank, but run outta gas when it gets to 1/4 tank??

Re: gas tank/gauge mystery

yea i would agree about the float too because that is what takes the measurement, but you seem to be getting good millage so it's more of a headache than an actual problem.

Re: gas tank/gauge mystery

200 miles to a tank? WTF. I get 300 regularly, if I run on the hwy the whole time I can get 350-360.
