I just bought this 280zx 83, and its been sitting for atleast two years. It has an digital dashboard, and the fuel guage is digital. The guage was working until we opened the fuel tank and drained the bad fuel. We put the lid back on and filled it up with a full tank. After we did that the guage stopped working. There are two bars. The one on the left is the last bit of gas, but the right one is the main guage. The left bar still works, but the right does not. We know it can't be that its out of gas because the tank is still full. We never drove it.
thanks if you can help.

Take sender out and try polishing the point a bet, also check connecters on out side of tank for corusion.
With seader out, connect wires, move flote up & down while some one watches guage, if nothing the fine wife making up the resistor may be broke & you need a new sebder.

It sounds like you know what your doing, so I'll try that. Although, today we have an even bigger problem. We started it up and took it about 1/3 of a mile and it turned off. We couldn't get it to start up again. There was a raw gas smell, and we think that the engine was flooded. What would be the problem. We think it might be that the fuel sytem needs to be flushed, or mabye the fuel pump is putting out too much gas. It's an eectrical fuel pump.
If you or any other person could give us an answer, that would be great. Thanks a lot.
