This is driving me nutz. 3 Months ago I stalled on the highway and I thaught the engine was toast or something because there was no explanation of why I stalled. It showed I had a 1/2 tank of gas and nothing else was wrong. I towed it to dealership ta 2 am really pissed (happend 3 days after i baught the car) and they said the gas censor was broken. Now last night I filled up because I had to drive top Buffalo and after 3 hours of hard driving my gas gauge still shows a FULL tank of gas?<br>Now again I have to take it back to the dalership and have them replace another gas censor and spend the whole freein morning taking care of this. How can this happen again after fixing it 3 months ago? It shouldn't have gone in the 1st place.. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: ARGG My gas censor in Broken again! Showing full tank after a 3 hour road trip? (zigger)

Is your trip computer also showing false information in regard to miles until empty? Knowing that will wil help isolate it to the sending unit (sensor) or the gauge.<p>Sounds like there may be a short somewhere that got fixed the first time they moved the wiring, but just replacing the sensor was not the total fix. <p>Until it is fixed you can conservatively assume 300 miles per tank full.
