Hi, I'd just like to say hello to all Volvo owners on the forum. We've had, in the family,
a 340, a V40, and now we have just got a 480s.
Its a 1995 car, one of the last in the series, and one which we have always wanted,
but with only 4 seats and a small luggage area it just did not suit.
Colour Code 323-22, Stormy Grey Metallic, a 2.0 L 20F Renault engine and the only fault, at the moment, an inaccurate fuel gauge which wont read above half full.

Thanks Tech,
I've been putting that off as, I believe it involves (no pun) taking out the
rear seats to get at the unit, and I don't know what amperage/voltage
I should be looking for from the sender.

You should be able to get to the sending unit from in the trunk.You should also be able to check it with an ohm meter.It is nothing more that a rehistat like your dash light dimmer switch.

I'll have a look at that tomorrow if that's the case.
At least it's underreading so we usually have about 15L left in the tank
when the light comes on.
But I know what you are saying.: How long can you rely on that?

I know what you are going through im having a problem with the sending unit in my car to.It works the opposite it doesn't read till it hits 1/4 of a tank.I know how far I can push it beacuse i ran it low one time and kept track of my milage so I know how much I get per tank.

That may be what you want to do till you get it fixed.
