    Default Gas Gauge not working

    Hey I have a 2004 GTi 1.8t, and the gas gauge is not working, it says that the car is almost full all the time, I was wondering what the probable causes of this and how much it would be to fix. Also how many miles do you guys usaully go on a full tank before filling up again.
    Thanks for the help

    Get someone to diag it for you... It could be the gauge or the sending unit. 345 to 375 for me.

    my low fuel light doesn't even come on, so I am left in the dark at the moment on when to fill, so i am guessing it is the sensor. I will get a Diag soon then.
