Re: Fuel gauge reads empty
Every gauge problem I've ever had like this has been at the connections on the tank or behind the gauge. Take them off, clean them up or replace them and I'll bet you're back in business.
Sometimes a squirt of electrical cleaner will do it. Other times, I get in and rough the surface of the connectors up with a small file or sandpaper. Often, I just snip them off and crimp on new ones, as they look old and crusted over. Cleaning is always temporary, eventually I end up at the replacement stage.
