So I replaced my fuel pump/filter about two weeks ago. Now it seems if my tank reaches about 1/8th tank(between E and 1/4 line) I'm running out of gas.
Is there the possibility that I installed the pump wrong, and just can't suck up that last 1/8th tank worth of gas? I'm near 100% certain I got it down and twist locked it into place in the tank basket as it should be.
Is there something else that I'm not getting here? In a couple hours I'll go fill my tank to see how much it takes. I did two gallons this morning, in order to get to work (where gas is paid, otherwise I'd have done full tank), so I should theoretically be able to get about 15 gallons if it were actually empty this morning. But only about 13 if I'm just not getting the rest of the gas, right?
I'll probably pull out the sensor and see if any of the contacts are dirty or anything. But I'm skeptical if this is the problem, as if I throw in two gallons after running out the level jumps up to the quarter line. Shouldn't it stay near the 1/8th line with two gallons - if my fuel level sensor is bad/dirty and the tank is really empty?
Anyone else ever have any problem like this? I don't want to be sucking my tank dry constantly.
