Fuel gauge accuracy, or lack thereof.

Our BB is way off. Full it shows 3/4 MOST of the time. Last tank showed low fuel light and upon fill up only took 26g out of 45.
It occasionally shows full when filled, not very often.

I wonder if there's a way to adjust the thing?

Anyone have an accurate gauge?

Mine is fairly accurate. But not a bluebird either.
Maybe you have a faulty sending unit?

same problem here, I have a Blue Bird also.

After fill, it reads 3/4 full, and jumps to 1/4 full in 100 miles.

Double whammy, the odometer on the dash is WAYYYY off too.

Luckily the axle odometer works

I use a GPS but the ODO is close enough.
