I thought I had somehow gained some mpg this weekend. I had almost 600 miles on a tank but somehow had a quarter tank left. Well, I sensed something was amiss and went to the gas station on my way home. It held 35.2 gallons... So glad I didn't run it dry.

I don't necessarily need more range. I'm okay with 600 miles to a tank. In fact I love it. My last daily driver was a jeep on 40's with a 10 gallon fuel cell. That was horrible.

I guess my fuel gauge had some how got stuck at 1/4 tank. After I filled up it randomly shot up to full like the float had been stuck so it is working as of now. I had tightened the big nut? on top of the tank the day before as it was leaking after topping off. Maybe I somehow twisted the sending unit. I'll find out when it gets back to a quarter tank.

There sending units are noted for sticking and wearing the contacts in spots.

Good to know. I'll look into it. Seems that there may be enough room under there to remove and replace without dropping the tank or lifting the bed.

There’s not lol. Lifting the bed is the easiest method though. Don’t need more than about 6”.
