  • Q:

    My fuel guage reads "Empty" even when the tank is full. Is the the sending unit one of the options that could possibly correct my issue? Or would you suggest replacing the Fuel level sensor as a better option? Or do they both provide the same result? I'm confused as to which one to get.
