New govt plan to get you off using gas:  You think tank is full.  Head out for nice drive and have to walk miles back thru Freeport in the hot FL sun.  Wife says last time I'm getting in that polluting thing, we take the Tesla next time!

Guess electric ground and float are my guesses.  I guess the float arm could be wonky/broke/loose?

It's possible the wiring to the sender in the frunk is frayed or loose, causing intermittent readings that might seem bizarro.

Inspect the wires in the frunk carefully - especially on the under side you can't see. Anything metal rolling around in there that might be touching the contacts?

Also, in my car the wires pass through the firewall through a small hole in the fiberglass not protected by a rubber grommet - another possible point for abrasion and shorting.

If you've really found a way to fill the tank without actually buying gas, please share with the group.

The explanation for my instrument weirdness was that my wiper switch is a headlight switch. Good so far although surprising at first discovery; does everything a wiper switch should do. Only problem was that the gauge lights brightness connector on the wiper switch was also wired, so if you turned (rather than pulled) the wiper knob, you were varying something back there from 0 to 12v. Have you twisted your wiper knob recently?

Or are your gas gauge contacts exposed in the frunk where something could short across them?
