    Sirs,
    Meron bang DIY checks na pwedeng gawin kapag nagloko ang fuel gauge? biglang bumaba sa empty yung needle sa gauge ng sportivo ko and the fuel lamp constantly lights up. Kaka-full tank ko lang the day before and have traveled no more than 100kms. All were fine nung ginarahe ko ang sasakyan last night and nangyari lang ito nung pinaandar ko this morning. Baka sakaling meron akong pwedeng i-check before bringing it to the casa.
    TIA.

    AFAIK yan ang sakit ng hilander and crosswind. I encountered that same problem last year. Lagi nasustuck up yung float sa loob ng fuel tank. 1.) Try mo bawasan yung laman ng tank to its 1/8 capacity then ifull tank mo ulit. Or 2.) Make it sure na almost 1/2 yung laman ng tank mo and hanap ka ng inclined parking na at least 15 degrees ang inclination and iakyat mo paatras yung auto mo para makalog yung float. Or 3.) Papalitan yung defective float ng fuel tank mo. 1.5k damage sakin nung nagpalit ako.

    Yup. Planning to have it done in my next PMS.
    Tried the suggestions but none worked. Thanks anyway.
    Pagtyagaan ko na lang muna in the meantime.
