Customer Question

I have a ford ka 2013. And my petrol gauge is currently showing less petrol then I have in the tank. Is it possible for someone to expand why this would be and is it important job to be done as I have my MOT In just a few weeks?

Hi..there..
It isnt a testable item on MOT so the car shouldnt fail on that issue alone - it fairly likely the failure could be the sender/pump unit in the fuel tank..the sender baiscally has a float on it that raises a small arm against a potentiometer to tell the dash/ecm what level tha fuel is in the tank..id say going by your description of whats going on the sender unit is likely need to be replaced....I do hope this helps
