    Tanung ko lang po meron na po ba sa inyo naka experience ng fuel gauge problem? Pag nag pa full tank ako ok sya pero pag once nangalahati na ung tanke ko bumababa na sya agad to 1/4-1/8 nung gauge, pero pag overnyt sya bago ko paandarin nasa kalahati ung level nya pero pag start ko na ulit bbb na sya gradually habang pina iinit ko ung makina.

    Your inputs would be gladly appreciated.

    More power and Happy Motoring

    Last 2 weeks ago nagka ganyan din ang fuel gauge ko...kaka full tank ko lang then suddenly pumalo sa empty ang fuel tank indicator ko then babalik uli sa full indication after some time. Tama nga, madumi nga siguro ang floater ko.

    Tanong ko lang sir, madali lang ba ang cleaning job para sa fuel tank floater?tatanggalin ba talaga ang buong tank? TIA

    Check, electrical first. Look also sa fuse box kung anong accessories ang kasama ng fuel gauge then check it all.

    ung floater kasi nung tinangal namin nakakabit sa parang electical box attached sa fuel tank. un bang parang takip narin nya sa my butas from atop ng tank. binuksan ko ung box kung saan naka attached ung floater then nilinis lang dahil maraming dumi sa my wiring nya. nung di ako satisfied sa replacement, binalik ko na lang.
    madali lang kung nakita mo kung papano ibaba ung tank, 3 bolt on each side plus fuel lines to detach, then 6 screws to detach ung whole floater. this after draining ung fuel mo.
    pero bago mo gawin to as sir tootsie said check mo muna mga electicals mo baka my nagloloose lang

    Personally, I had changed the floater late last year on my 2006 Crosswind at about 26km on the odometer. The problem is that even at full tank the indicator just points halfway. Had it done sa casa.

    I also have the same problem now, I'll check if I can DIM the entire process of taking the tank down, cleaning the floater and then put it back up again.

    Thanks for the suggestions here.

    Ang na experience ko naman is when the time nag pa full tank ako, i shut-off the engine.. nung tapos na pag fill nila sa tank, full tank na ako, then i started the engine..after starting, my experience was dahan-dahan lang bumaba ang gauge to empty level then after reaching the E, then it went back gradually sa F level.. I experience this only once...thank God... ewan ko ba ba't nagka ganun
