Default Yamaha fuel gauge

Anyone have any problem with the a Yamaha fuel gauge? Initially it was working now it reads always low close to empty. Put gas in 5 gallons at a time and finally filled the tank and still reads the same. Less than 20 hours on engine so I guess it will covered under warranty but it's driving me nuts.

More than likely it is the fuel tank sender.

Is it an analog gauge or digital?

LCD and digital are two different things.
The signal to both "analog" (needle) and "Digital" (LCD) is an analog signal.

Why get upset at the gauge when:
A) You are not positive its the gauge.
B) The gauge is getting a reading from another source, IE: Sender.

Check the sender and the wires.

I stepped on a nail. Went through my foot. Foot hurts like hell.

I am not impressed with my foot.


I bought a cow. A fine cow it was. In perfect health. Provided copious quantities of excellent milk. Damn cow ate some bad grass. Cow got sick and won't perform (give milk). Damn that cow. I want the money back that I paid for the defective cow.
