2013 Kia Optima. Fuel gauge shows 1/16th of a tank and the low fuel light is not on. Engine shut down. Out of gas. Add gas. Car starts up. What would cause the gauge to misread in this way?


most fuel gauge readings are not that accurate anyway so its out of fuel but not what the is guage reading. but the fuel level sensor in the tank may be at fault sound like its the prob but the instument pack should put the low fuel light on if its fitted on your vehicle spec but not always fitted even though the warning light is present hope this helps

I ran out of gas in my 08 yaris and still had 3 bars. I put in 4 gallons and I'm still at 3 bars. What happened that the bars aren't moving up with the extra gas?


This problem usually occurs due three reasons:
1. If the odometer is reversed. (In this case the speed is not read. if meter reads speed ignore this reason).
2. The pointer in the sender fuel gauge is carbon fouled. (Remove the fuel gauge from the fuel tank and just clean the pointer. The fuel gauge is located under the rear passenger seat).
3. The fuel gauge in the fuel tank is defective.(Replace with a good known one even purchased from the junk).
Hope that works.Thank you for visiting Fixya.

Mazda 2008 tribute, fuel gauge not reading correctly. Replaced the fuel pump and no change. Any ideas?


If the signal from the sending unit is correct, the problem would be in the gauge on the dash.

I have a 2000 Grand Prix SE and car specs say that it has a 68 liter gas tank. I converted that into gallons, and its about 17.8 gallons. when i refueled, the gas pump only said it put in 12 gallons when...


make sure you fuel tank float isn't becoming saturated with gasoline. If the gauge reads full when it is indeed full, you probably don't have a short in the wire that goes to your fuel float sending unit. If that wire is bare and shorts out it will say you tank is empty since it works on resistance open or unplugged the gauge would read full, closed is or going to ground the gauge will read empty. I would think the float might be bad or the float arm got stuck down when you turned a sharp corner. I had one of these cars but I don't remember exactly where the fuel level sending unit is located and if you need to remove the fuel tank to gain access to the sending unit. I hope this helps you

Fuel gauge not give proper reading.. register full


Sorry to say,but the fuel sending unit is the problem,the fuel tank will have to be lowered out of the vehicle to replace the unit.If the fuel sending unit is not available by itself you will have to replace the whole fuel pump assembley.

Fuel gauge reads E when first started, jumps to F after awhile


It is more likely to be the fuel guage sender which is faulty.
