    Hey guys. My gas gauge is showing me wrong all the time. When I fill my tank up, it indicates 5/4 gas. And it stays there for like 200km. When I have 1/4 tank left, the fuel warning lights comes up. What can be wrong?

    I don't have acces on VAGCOM, so I don't have any codes. Is it possible to change the fuel tank sender?

    I've done some research, and it seems like the sender and the pump are 1 unit.. The pump costs 300$..

    check the fuses and if all is good, check the gauge when manually moving the level float, if still not working then it needs replacing :)

    I've uptained that I get low fuel warning light when I'm almost empty. The gauge is showing 1/4 of a tank still. Is there a good reason for that? Seems like the sensor is working fine, but its just showing wrong in the dash..
