Re: My fuel Gauge lying to me? I hate Liars!

I've always heard that Zuks gas gauges go bad. I always considered myself lucky because my gauge worked perfect. Then one day my gauge did what yours did, I filled up but the gauge showed just below full. As an experiment the next time I filled up I kept squeezing more fuel in. I was determined to make sure it was filled. I had to put the gas in super slow but I put in over a gallon more! In a Zuk that's a lot! The gauge showed full!

So I don't know what changed in the gas tank but something did because I never had to squeeze in an extra gallon before. But it's still like that to this day. I checked all of my vent hoses and everything looks OK.
