I had the unfortunate experience of running out of fuel in my newly acquired MKII. I was on my way to the petrol station with what I thought was 1/4 of a tank of fuel when the fuel pump started clicking quickly. At first I thought it was a fault in the pump or a major fuel leak but it was simply no fuel! You don’t realise how heavy these cars are until you have to push one.
Anyway, is it possible to recalibrate it by bending the arm of the float on the sender unit? The gauge goes right back to the left with the ignition off and now that the tank is full the gauge reads over “F”. If I bent the arm to lower the float that might fix the over and under readings, possibly?
Or should I just replace the Sender Unit?
