Adrenalin broke my fuel tank sender

While using AE speed Tracer data logging my new pump, I did an acceleration run (boosted launch).

My fuel level was 2/3, after the run the needle climbed to Full + and is now stuck there.

One of two things happened, either the Adrenalin makes so much power that the G force took out my fuel sender or the Adrenalin can make fuel. Either way I am thrilled with the pump, it works well.

On a serious note has anyone successfully unstuck a sender without dropping the tank? Any ideas are welcome.

Re: Adrenalin broke my fuel tank sender

Check the plug above the tank. The connection could have came apart?

Back to stock for now.

Re: Adrenalin broke my fuel tank sender

Mine got stuck at full once. For a while I thought I was getting amazing mileage. Then a couple days later, it unstuck itself.

DRW and tow fast parts.......

Re: Adrenalin broke my fuel tank sender

I did a boosted launch at the track and the same thing happened. Except I rode around for a few months with it like that. It was stuck good. I had to drop the tank to un-stick it. The rubber mallet didn't work.
