Fuel Gauge is completely stuck on full. Ran a full tank through and no change. Any suggestions before I start digging in?

Thanks!

My wife's Ford Fiesta's gas guage also stuck, I added Marvel Mystery Oil to the gas the gauge started working again must have freed the float.

The transmission exploded shortly after but I doubt the MMO had anything to do with that. :grin

If I had the choice, I prefer to have a transmission ion working order than a fuel gauge.

Unfortunately with the Ford Fiesta you don't have a choice this is the car I wrote about a while ago that the transmission would grenade every 25000 miles.

But the fuel gauge works good.

unplug the gauge from the fuel tank and see what you get. If nothing changes then your gauge is off. Where you find a new gauge is beyond me

I'd suspect a stuck float more than a faulty gauge. If you have a long/thin battery powered trouble light with a thin mirror, point it into the tank and see if the float is stuck in the up position. Then, if needed, lift the tank a bit to ensure the fuel pump connection is good. Maybe disconnect and re-connect it to be sure. Then, if needed, maybe bang the tank back down onto the frame a bit and ensure the float moves.

Please let us know what the actual cause ends up being.
