Yamaha Fuel Guage

Hi, I have a F115 yamaha and have a problem with the fuel tank part of the display which is part of the tacho, it is currently reading empty when the tank is half full, is there a calibration setting for this or any other things that i need to do, I looked at the back of gauge and there are no obvious switches to toggle or anything...

Any help would be very appreciated.... Thanks, Andrew

Don't feel too bad. Mine read full until you pull about 20 gallons from the 50 gallon tank; reads empty when you get to about 15 gallons remaining.

I doubt there's any calibration possible, it's more a matter of where in the tank the sender is located and how the tank sits when the boats in the water.

In my case, the sender is at the rear of the tank and the tank sits nose-up.

Same guage I've got. Yes they have internal lighting.

Don't remember which wire it is, but I'll take a look when I get home (assuming I remember.)

In case I don't, feel free to shoot me a reminder e-mail:

Same problem here with the fuel guage.

It shows empty after about 60L have gone from a 250 L tank

Would love to know how to fix it, any ideas?

Tim
