Re: Fuel gauge and sender mismatched

I did a little more tweaking with the MM today and found that if I also used the Mid-Hi and Mid-Lo calibration points (3/4 and 1/4 full) that the gauge reading becomes more accurate than when I only used the "high" and "low" calibration points. I still can't make the gauge read all the way "FULL", b...

Works on 7-24VDC even though PCB says +12V. https://i.ibb.co/Ny7hdK0/IMG-20190816-121558738.jpg 3. Main ...

Your observations on your Gauge is odd, e.g. inverse readings. Perhaps the PO can give you some history having replaced the G...

My recently inherited 710M has some issues, the one I'm focusing on now is the fuel gauge reading. I knew that the gauge needle moved, but it never seemed accurate, and we never trusted it. I want to get this thing dialed so I don't have to worry about it in the future. EDIT: I write pretty long tec...
