Uh Oh, Fuel Gauge Trouble!
I am currently having a little trouble with my fuel gauge. I will explain the problem for all in a fair bit of detail so you can give me the best solution. Firstly, I'm running an EA on straight LPG, no petrol at all. The trouble I am having is that when I start the car the fuel gauge goes straight up to high then goes back to empty, so basically I have no idea how much gas I have (I am resetting the trip meter every time just after I fill up so it gives me a rough idea as to what I have). This caused some trouble a couple of weeks ago when the car ran out of gas while I was running it in the backyard! (It's an Auto to, so a bit of work was done by the RACV to tow it to the nearest gas station). As far as I know the only electrics that involve plugs for my EA is near the gastank in the boot. I have tried to plug it in properly and still the same thing keeps happening. I believe it must be something to do with the earth, or something similar to this. Anyone have any suggestions for me?
