    Default Fuel Gague not working

    I have a 1.8 Duel fuel vectra and the fuel gauge is not working at all.. I have just filled up with fuel and it is showing empty.. No fuel light showing . The speedo works fine as does the temp gauge . Any ideas what could be causing this?

    Thats just the cost of fuel fella, all our fuel gauges are doing the same!

    Just checked and the fuel gauge works for LPG but when I switch to petrol it just drops to empty...

    I pretty much only run it on LPG anyway but would be nice to see how much petrol is in the car... I am thinking that the Sender may be faulty..

    Any ideas how to access the wiring connectors for the petrol tank?

    When you say "I have just filled up with fuel"

    Was that petrol or LPG?

    If you've only got a small amount of petrol in the tank and you only added a couple of gallons it won't always register on the gauge. When I was trying to sell my late dad's car, the fuel light was on. I ended up having to put 2 separate amounts of £10 in before the light went off. £10 was not enough to put the light out or register on the gauge. Needed another £10 to wake it up.

    The petrol tank is full.. LPG is nearly empty just about to go in to Red so I thought I would switch and drive on the luxuary stuff for a bit.. Knowing that I had petrol in the tank I was surpised to see that the fuel gauge went to the empty mark straight away.. so I filled up with petrol to see if that made any difference. No movement at all..
