Fuel Pump Reads Full

Any help on where to start would be great .... Gauge isn't stuck because when you turn off power , it goes to empty ... but it reads FULL all the time... it was reading full and knew we had been out boarding 2 times on the same tank... ended up putting in about 17 gallons in it .... what should i look at or check ....thanks

What year and what model boat?

this happened to me and it was becaure my floater was stuck in the full position inside the gas tank, put in a new floater and it worked fine. It could also be a bad sender causing the guage to read incorrectly.

If you are looking for a fuel sending unit you may want to check www.greatlakesskipper.com as well their prices were significantly lower when I ordered my last week.

Those Centroid sending units are adjustable. You adjust it when it's Full and Empty, then it should read correctly at all levels (assuming it still works). It takes a #1 Phillips screwdriver.
