2006 Mustang GT fuel gauge errors
Is anyone else having problems with fuel gauge? I tried doing a search for this but didn't find anything the wasn't related to fuel tank "filling" problems.
Both times I had 1/4 to 1/2 tank of fuel and the gauge read "Empty" and the low fuel warnings came on indicating 15 to 20 miles to empty. Panicking, I stopped for gas immediatly and it only took 8 to 10 gallons and then the gauge read full. When I calculated my milage, 8 to 10 gallons seemed dead on for what I would have used since the last fill up.
The first occurance: I was parked nose up in a slight incline. Before I parked it, I knew I was somewhere between 1/4 and 1/2 tank. When I started back up and left the parking lot, that is when I noticed the fuel gauge on "E".
The second time, I was also just a little below 1/2 tank. Took my LL GT out for a spin of spiritted driving, hard launches and hard cornering, to show the car off to friend in the passenger seat. After settling the car down off of a few fast tight corners, the low fuel warning came on showing 15 miles to empty.
What gives? If this has already been discussed, please direct me to the old posts. I'm on a slow dial up and got tired of "slowly" paging through the older posts. The searchs I tried only lead me to "filling stop" problems.
