Fuel Gauge Fluctuation - Mk2 Clio
I have just joined the renault forums and I'm finding the site very informative.
I own a 2001(51) Clio 1.2 16v and the fuel gauge is fluctuating especially on inclines/declines. I suspect this is something related to the fuel sender unit and the float arm. So far I have disconnected the wiring to the unit and cleaned the contacts, but still the fluctuations occur. I am planning to replace the fuel sender unit with a used part to see if this cures the problem.
I would like to know if there is anything else which can be causing the fluctuation, any feedback is much appreciated. I am trying to calculate the mpg as I do not have a trip computer and its proving very difficult at the moment.
