    Fuel Gauge Needle Not Moving

    Hi all,

    Wonder if anyone can confirm my suspicions that this is a problem at the fuel tank end, since the estimated miles til empty on the dash still reads as if it were full (i.e. ~350 miles) after 60 miles?

    From the looks (Haynes manual) this shouldn't be too difficult to get to/replace but I would also like to know if anyone else has had this problem before and if anyone knows what the cost of the parts might run to to solve it? (I guess a replacement sender unit).

    Cheers guys =)

    Hmmm, my problem is similar, but the opposite - it moves too much
