If you ground the wire going to the tank unit the gage should read full.
If so tank sending unit is bad.

My first thought is that your float needs to be replaced. If it is
copper then it perhaps has sprung a leak. If it is composite, it may be

The L emerged from winter storage flawlessly. It started, moved,
turned, and stopped at my command. (It did a lot better than many
people—but I digress.)
When it went down for the winter there was gas in it—probably 7 or 8
gallons, and the fuel gauge registered very low. When it started this
spring the fuel gauge was LTWS (lower than whale s—t). First drive
was to the gas station to get some puny 91 corn oil laced fuel. I bought 7
gallons, and the fuel gauge went to 1/4 tank. The gas station is about 2 miles
north. I went to cruise-in Friday evening, and drove about 7 miles. the
gauge started that trip below 1/4, and I parked at cruise-in “nose tilted up”
so gauge would naturally read less. When I started the car to come home,
it read LTWS, and did not improve when I stopped or caused gas to move to the
front of the tank. There are no leaks or drips, and I have a hard time
believing I am getting 1 or <1 MPG.
My experience last summer was a full tank registered full, and then it
went to zero almost immediately from 1/2. When I filled it, it often
would fill at 12 or 13 gallons—so the zero reading was really about 1/2.
Is my fuel reporting system broken at the sending unit or in the
electrics in the dashboard? Current sending unit is a Van’s purchased
unit, 3 years old. The original unit is rebuilt, and will be installed
when there really is very little gas in the tank, but if the problem is up
front, then I better gear up for removing seat and knee panel and
Thanks for your help.
