    Thanks 73 Kombi. Gonna leave as is for now but have instead calibrated by noting fill level in 5L incriments from empty.

    There's no school like the school. If you get the urge to fix give Lionel Otto Instruments a call. There in Salisbury- Brisbane

    I replaced the fuel sender in our 69 ute a year ago but i reckon we can tell the difference in performance between a full and below half a tank. In the ute the tank sits low, like under where a buses back seat would be. Not much head pressure when level gets low.
    When full its happy days, when getting low, below half, not quite the same throttle response.
    When we start to feel this behaviour we know its time to top her up.
    Even though our gauge works well i belive this is when the ute wants to be fueled up and who am i to deny it ?
