Can I calibrate my fuel gauge to my new fuel pump?

Recently had my fuel pump replaced but the digital gauge on my dashboard doesn't sync up.

When the tank is full the gauge reads full. But after about 150 miles the gauge will read empty. If I keep going past the blinking empty gas tank warning , it will eventually read full again. After another 150 miles or so the gauge will show more than half a tank left but I will be left stranded on empty.

Is there a way to calibrate the gauge based on the new sending unit readings?

Hi @xykobas3rd ,

It appears as though the “new” sending unit may be faulty or is sticking as if it is the correct one for your vehicle, it should already be calibrated for the gauge.

Contact whoever replaced the fuel pump and ask them about the problem as the sending unit float arm may be sticking etc. if it wasn’t installed correctly along with the new fuel pump.

Here’s a link that may be of some help.
