Just picked up this car.. So I may be mistaken on how the fuel gauge works? But I am under the understanding that the main gauge functions like any other fuel gauge.. BUT.. the little gauge underneath is like a higher resolution for when you are at 1/4 tank and below.

Well.. my main gauge seems to work fine but when it was at E the little gauge still read "1/4". However, when it was on E, the fuel light was NOT illuminated and I suspect it should have been?

So, is there a way for the main gauge to work correctly but the little one to be "stuck" on 1/4??

If so, is there a "fix" for this smaller gauge not reading correctly?


Side note: Temp gauge is intermittent... any ideas on that?


Thanks in advance!

Mine does the same but I have not been brave enough to go so far down on gas to be sure. When I get to 1/4 tank, the red hand of the little gauge shows itself in the window, but then it never goes down any farther from there. If there is a low-fuel light, I am not aware of it. Mine is also an '81.
