Installed a new fuel pump and now the when the fuel warning comes on I can only get between 16 and 17 gallons in the tank? Do a reset on the panel and it will read 363 miles to empty and then begin to drop randomly. Reads 363 and in a mile or so reads 355? Wonky.
Would disconecting the battery for 30 mnutes reset the gauge?

There is no reset..... Something bent the fuel float when installing or its a defective or cheap sending unit...

Thanks Todd Z - I had two very competent mechanics working on it, so it's not negligence. Quality pump, so it mus be defective. Too much of a hassel to replace (until failure), so I will live with 4 plus gallons on reserve when the light comes on.
