Re: [DMCForum] difference between fuel senders

I THink the answer may lie in how the fuel behaves in the tank. A haf
full tank will slosh around a lot and an empty tank won't.

My citroen gauges, both old and modern, always spend ages on full and
give you an accurate reading as the tank's dwindling. I always assumed
this was because anything down to 3/4 full will sloch around anough to
always give a full reading.

BTW Walt, door seals are ordered.
