fuel tank fuel guage float

3 posts in this topic

my fuel guage on my 6 gallon steel fuel tank always reads empty. went to a marine dealer for a new float for the tank & was told none available. he said the ethanol fuel eats the sealer off the cork causing it to get saturated with fuel. has anybody out there found a suitable material to use as a replacement float? sure would be nice to have my fuel guage working.

Dude, don't waste your time looking. Just buy a new plstice tank, much safer and durable. I googled 6 gallon plastic outboard fuel tank and found them for $32 new

I agree with Chris...

But, if you're set on keeping the tank...

I'm not certain what your float looks like, but you probably could make it work with a float from a electric sending unit.

But, by the time you buy one of those, strip the float off, you're at $20... and not too far from a new tank.
