Re: Fuel Gauge stuck on full!
Good idea to use engine hours for the reasons you stated.
A pegged gauge is either of two things: the sender or the gauge. It's usually the sender. Sometimes a bad ground can cause it.
Check it out: I'd first confirm the ground (I once found a ground wire simply hanging in space because a butt connector failed!!!), then the sender, although sometimes it's easier to check the gauge.
How to check the gauge: Google Teleflex, they have troubleshooting guides for just this issue.
