Fuel Selector Switch

Hi All,

Used the Search Function, but may be typing in the wrong keywords...tried "fuel selector," "selector valve," "fuel tank switch" etc. to no avail.

That being said, my 1995 OBS fuel switch recently is acting a bit strange and I wanted to troubleshoot it here. The rear tank seems to read fine, but it seems as though when I switch to the front tank, its always reading 3/4 to totally full, even as I know I'm running the truck hard. I drove the truck hard solid for a week putting over 100 miles on the truck and the lowest the gauge read on the front tank was 3/4 full. When I switched to rear tank and drove hard for 20 miles, constantly fueling the truck to test this tank, I saw the fuel going down normally. Looks as though the front tank/sender/valve is acting up. Any suggestions/ideas?

Can anybody point me in the right direction?

Pull the front tank and fix or replace the sender.
