Asked by anthonyferri15 Mar 11, 2013 at 01:50 PM about the 2006 Ford Mustang V6 Premium

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I drift my 2006 v6 mustang the gas
gauge goes down to a few miles til empty
then very very slowly goes up. I'm assuming
its because all the gas gets thrown to one
side and throws off the sensor but is there a
way to fix this?

If you are drifting, why are you looking at the gas gauge? There's more important things going on. -- The gauge comes back slowly because the circuit has smoothing built in so the needle doesn't fling around. With out it, every start, stop and turn would send it wagging like a happy dog's tail.

When i`m done drifting it says around 14 miles to empty and its not just my gauge its the computer to. And it takes hours of driving to go back up unless I get it filled at a station.

From what I remember you could put in a racing fuel tank which would have a different gauge mechanism in the tank.
