The gas gauge in the old Cabana has not worked since we have owned it but a marked stick and stopping for gas every 200 miles has been OK. So this years list included the gas gauge working. I wanted to drop the gas tank and check and clean it also. So the tank is out and looks really good although the sending unit had a sunk float. This can be fixed but I found a reproduction unit on e-bay for $90.00 So if anyone has a gas gauge problem this may help.Here's a link to the ad. http://www.ebay.com/itm/360214208337?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_...
They had a few and it's really nice to know you can still get them. Hope this help someone, Tony, Joy and Cool Paw Luke
Hi Tony! Did you find lots of "stuff" in the gas at the bottom of the tank? I've always wondered, and even worried a little, about that if I'm running low on fuel in my old rvs.
I was surprised at how little "stuff" i did find. A tiny bit of pitting on the bottom of the tank but not really anything else. I was really happy to not find a can-O-worms. We do also put a few thousand miles a year on her driving on some roads less traveled. One reason I wanted to look was I have changed out fuel filters a couple times now and always found just a bit of very fine rust in the filter. Should have the new sending unit next week and I'll get the tank back in. As Cary says it's getting closer to the time to "go go" again for our play time. Fair winds, Tony, Joy and Cool Paw Luke
That's really good to know that after all the years there's little or no "crud" in the tank. Bouncing around at the back end of nowhere... our favorite place to dry camp!, it would not be good to have a clogged fuel line. Ya, that's right. You go to that private piece of paradise of yours as I recall. Did you ever get a new engine in your "toad"?
Update on the new fuel sending unit. I received said unit and was surprised to find it made of stainless steel. A very nice upgrade from the stock unit. Holes all lined up perfect. Highly recommended!
Well, at least one company is doin it right!
