almost ready. so after my pdi i just put fuel into my new rocketa 150 which says it has a 1.6 gal tank. I put .6 gal in and the indicator reads just above empty, (reserve?). is there a minimum amount of gas that the indicator should be reading or is there an issue somewhere else?
The fuel gauge FLOATS are not very accurate, you could have 1/4 of a tank left and it may show empty or you could have 1/2 tank and it may show full. The Floats are on a wire that move up and down on a resistor plate but it can only move up and down only so far on the plate. You can adjust them to your liking and you are really concerned when your getting low not when your full so you bend the wire accordingly. To align it you take the sensor and float out and hold it on the side of the tank as if it is inside and you then can bend the wire so when it is all the way down your gauge reads empty. Alleyoop
