    Default Slow to respond fuel gauge

    Does anybody else have the problem with the fuel gauge either slow to move or show incorrect reading? i.e. I put in £15 last week and it took it to 3/4 of a tank and the fuel light had only just come on. Has anyone successfully cleaned tank sender ? Also how do you get to the tank sender on a signum ?

    £15 is about 10 litres, or just over 1/8 of a tank
    We often get people complaining their fuel tank gauge hasn't registered the fuel...
    However, there are still people out there that fill up with £5 and wonder why!

    How do you know there is 3/4 of a tank?
    I suggest you fill it up and compare
    I always run mine full to about half, and then refill
    Filling with less than 10 litres often leaves the fuel tank gauge failing to move for some time

    I get paid in a couple of days so I'll fill it up and see what happens but I think the sender needs cleaning to give a correct reading! Anyone know how2 remove tank sender can it be done through rear seats or is it drop the tank
