Re: Fuel Gauge Stays Pegged on Full
I haven't done the harpoon mode on my tank. The last time I went wheeling, I only filled the tank up about 2/3 of the way and it still happened. I think how hard you bounce it around effects how easy it is to become unstuck. None of the other tricks have ever worked for me, and once I got in there and unhooked it by hand, I can see why. In my case, it's been pretty well pinned in there every time.
You may be able to figure out something to stop it, but my guess is that a slight bend in the arm would be the quickest and most likely to fix and not damage anything else approach. I would say the throw on the float is probably around 12", and the bend probably only needs to be enough to reduce this down to about 11", so I doubt it would effect the gauge reading that much.
I'm sure there's lots of ways to skin this one though...
