    That suggests that either the cable from the tank to the gauge isn’t connected at one end or the other; or that the tank isn’t earthed. There isn’t an earth cable for this and it relies on metal to metal contact between the tank and body. Running a dedicated earth lead often works.

    Hi Jan

    I had a look at the car this morning and the speedo cable had come off the back of the speedo head, I fixed that back on and the fuel gauge started to work so it seems like its been an earth problem to me so thank you for your advice I can sleep better to night.

    Regards David G
