Hi Folks,

I got in my car this morning and saw that the low fuel light was on and the needle was just about all the way to E. I thought it strange, since I seemed to recall that I had about 1/2 tank of fuel. I also got the warning light that said I had 25 miles of travel left.

I drove about 12 miles to a gas station. (Their pumps went out of order in the middle of my refueling. I had to wait ten minutes to finish. This is just the kind of Monday I'm having, I guess.) I filled it up, started the car, and saw the same warnings and needle position.

Anything I can do about this short of taking it in for service?

Thanks,

Bill

How much did it take to fill it up? Was it only a half tank down? If so, sounds like a sensor issue and I would bring it to the dealer or an indy shop. In the interim, I would reset my trip odometer after every fill up and refuel when I have gone about 200 - 250 miles depending on your driving.

Thanks so much for the reply, lacrosse.

I'm not sure how much it took to fill up. The gas pump and its credit card reader BOTH malfunctioned while I was there. I pumped in two shifts with a 15-minute break in between. I was having quite a day. I'm guessing it took a total of a little over half a tank.

The good news is that, later that day, the fuel gauge popped back up to full and the warning lights went out. Weird experience all around. Knock wood, it'll keep working.
