Yesterday i filledup my Fuel tank for Rs 1000 and before that it was empty. suddenly the fuel gauge showed almost full tank for a while and after a few minutes it came down to less then half. Sometimes for Rs 1000 Petrol it shows it as almost empty tank. what could be the problem? any one can suggest.
not a big issue... Fuel gauge`s reading almost like this
it seems you bought this car just now
96-2000 model civics fuel guage have manufacturing fault. dont waste your time trying to fix it
Civic 96-00 fuel gauges have no manufacturing fault at all.As many of you know reversing the mileage of vehicles is very very common here in Pakistan.The majority of mechanics & electricians here are not at all professionals.The entire cluster system is very very sensitive.They don't handle the cluster with care.So many clusters go bad and loose their original factory settings and then they never show the accurate readings.Secondly there is a trend here to replace stock bulbs of a cluster with LED bulbs just to make the interior look good.But then you loose all accurate readings and that can be very dangerous and costly.What's the point of showing off when one can't even get the proper readings out of the his/her car.
Thanks for the info but before buying this car i had a thorough check through a mechanic that if the meter has ever been opened and that is not the case with my car. so any more suggestions??
Rs 100 petrol wont show any deflection as now a days it only gets less than a liter.
sorry i meant Rs:1000
It may be possible that the float in your tank is a little jammed.By the help pf float one sees quantity of fuel.For once empty your tank and use all the fuel and just leave a little bit of it so you can reach the pump.Then full up your tank.Get 4000Rs worth of petrol filled and give it a try.I to own a 6th gen which is a 2000 Vti Oriel A/T totally petrol driven
