    Fuel level Gauge - inaccurate

    Hi guys

    I have this annoying problem with Readings of the Fuel level Gauge.
    If i start the engine 10 times i`ll get 5 different readings.
    Some times my fuel indicator is ON and if i turn off and on again the indicator is gone

    Can some one tell me what can i do ?

    Can i change something - fuel sensor or something ?

    I`m kind of get used to that problem but i like to know how hard is to get rid of it

    I`m thinking of add Fuel level Gauge - i found one on LMF shop

    Stack Professional Gauges - Fuel Level

    Any one have ever install this ?

    Not sure myself though mine has done this a few times recently too, but only on petrol, LPG has been fine. I always reset the trip odometer when I fill up so for LPG I know I'm close to empty before the light comes on.

    Probably a sensor fault for the fuel level reading at a guess?
