I believe you have primary and secondary reserve tanks, nothing appears until it is needed.

They are 2 seperate gages. The secondary gage should start showing about the time you get to a 1/4 of a tank. The sending units on these cars go out... If you buy a new one it will be an updated unit that is more reliable.
