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.

maybe install a bed tank?

bamtech1 It just has a slider bar where you guesstimate it at each fillup.

Destroked 450 Interesting app, how does it chart you city and highway milage?
02-09-2019 07:05 AM
bamtech1 I use a free app on my phone- used to be Gas Cubby, now Fuelly I think? Works the same as pen and paper- just enter odometer and gallons and it spits out a mileage figure. What’s neat is it will keep a lifetime average, tell you how much up or down from last tank, keeps all logs by date, graphs etc. You can use it to track all kinds of other maintenance costs etc., but I just stick to mileage.
Really just said all that to explain this screen shot. Shows every drop of fuel I’ve added in the 2 years I’ve had the truck. ‘96 RCLB 2wd NV4500 stock except AFC Live and 5” exhaust. 261K on the clock.
