Re: Fuel gauge reads empty

What kind of sender does it have? I know on my old MG the float cracked and filled with fuel, and read empty for a few years. Took a while to make it to the top of my "fix list," but I would suspect the connections. Generally it is a simple system and start with the connections then check sender, and then gauge. A multi-meter is going to be your friend if it is not just a corroded connection.
