My F250 Super Duty fuel gauge is stuck on empty.

Asked by Jul 05, 2014 at 10:21 AM about the 2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty XLT 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After filling tank to full then running the fuel down quite a bit, then adding another quarter
tank gauge needle wouldn't budge, but now the gauge is wavering a bit, but still only in
empty area. I'm told I need a new fuel pump, but not sure about that. Also, came across
info that the in-tank sender might need to be replaced.

They combined the fuel tank sender and fuel pump into one unit, one can purchase them separately but with the amount of work it takes to get to it I'd replace the complete unit. And i would say if your gauge is staying on empty that your senders float maybe bad or it has fallen off.

my 2006 F 250 Ford gas gauge read at a quarter of a tank when I filled it up and it stayed at a quarter of a tank after filling up I was confused as you are then my friends girlfriend told me this is what cracks me up she said disconnect the battery to reset the computer so that's what I did just now and my gas gauge work perfectly sometimes it's easy it's asking a chick

Have a 2002 F-250 V-10 had the same gas gauge problem. Disconnected the battery for a while and reconnected it and that solved the problem. I've found that sometimes works for other problems too.
