fuel gauge issues
Left out in truck yesterday, low of fuel, low fuel light on, but had just come on on way home day before. Get to my parents a few miles away. Keys get locked in truck by my 5 yo; so my buddy slim jims it open. Now, on the way home I realize oh yeah, I need fuel", look down, and gauge is a little over 1/4 tank,(scratches head) trip computer says 25 miles to empty, confused now? So today I put 8 gallons of fuel in, with key off. Crank truck, gauge looks to be in about same place, trip computer still says a little over 1/4 tank, pointer is about 1/8-3/16 inch above the 1/4 mark. I come home, and disconnect batteries, same results. Now by my calculations, 8 gallons is close to what the gauge is registering, but the trip computer not reseting makes me wonder? Anyone else had this problem?
