Fuel guage off by 1/2 tank. WWYD

Motor runs great after having the fuel pump replaced with a NAPA pump but the guage is now off by 1/2 a tank. I must burn 25-30 gallons before the guage moves off the full mark. NAPA says they will replace the pump and pay labor after the original NAPA pump is sent to the engineers and proven defective. I think this would be a $300 gamble with the odds in favor of NAPA.

Does anyone have any comment or suggestion?

RottenRalph,

What is the part number for the NAPA fuel pump you purchased? I wander if it would be the same for my P32 chassis? I'm in the process of pulling my pump out to check/replace. Just looking for some numbers to start searching for/with. Thanks in advance.

Larry

I run about close to 100 miles before my needle moves off of the full. I would say that what you are looking at is normal considering what it is.

When I'm on the 3/4 of a tank reading I can normally pack in about 40 gallons. It's just something that I live with and know what to expect after all these years.

I also drive about 80 - 100 miles before the gage starts to move off full. On the bottom side the last 1/4 goes down awful fast. I have learned to plan accordingly.

What.. You expect a fuel guage to be accurate? I've never seen one that acted differently than yours
