New Car Fuel Gauge Sender Unit in Hamilton

What is the fuel gauge sender unit?

New fuel sender unit Hamilton

Located inside your car’s fuel tank, the fuel gauge sender unit is the measures how much fuel is in the tank and sends this information to the fuel gauge on your dash. This allows you to see how much fuel is remaining in your tank.

The fuel gauge sender unit consists of a sender float and a variable resistor. The sender float is attached to the variable resistor and is designed to float on the surface of the fuel inside of the tank. As the level drops, the float will change position and move the variable resistor. This will affect the level of fuel displayed on your car’s fuel gauge.

Any problems with the fuel gauge sender unit can cause the fuel gauge to behave incorrectly and give inaccurate fuel readings. This can increase the risk of your car getting dangerously low on petrol or diesel without you knowing.


Symptoms of a faulty diesel / petrol fuel gauge sender unit:

Fuel gauge behaving strangely – A faulty petrol or diesel fuel gauge may change levels randomly. For example, the gauge may display a full tank then display a three-quarter full tank only minutes later.

Fuel gauge stuck on empty – If the fuel gauge float breaks, it can become unattached from the fuel gauge sender unit. This can cause your fuel gauge to constantly display an empty reading.

Low-fuel light not appearing – If your fuel gauge sender is faulty, the low-fuel light may not appear. This can lead to your car running low on petrol or diesel with no warning.
