Default Fuel Gauge Question

I just bought this '03 Cruiser and I'm not sure if I'm not getting the tank full or if the gauge is not what I expect.

I filled it until I saw gas in the filler spot today and this is how the gauge registered.

Now, just because I saw gas in the filler doesn't mean it was full.

It seems to stop short of full, at least on the first time fill up. The last two times I've been able to fit anywhere from 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 additional gallons in it.......... But it is a PITA to get it there. I started doing that because at a click stop it is registering just about here or a little under...........

Confused. lol

Welcome to the forum.

You might try clearing the vent line. Be careful how much pressure you put in the line. Read the link below regarding pressure.

I'm trying to figure out where to do this without dropping the tank. Might have to ask a friend unless someone wants to pipe in.

Have you considered disconnecting the vapor pipe which runs down alongside the fuel pipe to the gas tank?
