High gas tank pressures in a car may cause gas tank bulging, fuel line leaks, fuel pump problems, lack of fuel to the engine for combustion, dangerous conditions when opening the gas tank filler cap and potentially create fire hazards.

What should I do if my gas gauge is not working?

Note that some self-test steps may stop the gas gauge at 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4, as well. Fuel sender test. The fuel sender test should be conducted when the tank is lower than HALF, to prevent fuel splashing. Start by making sure the plug is clean, dry, and free of corrosion.

How can I Check my fuel tank pressure?

If you can get a look at the piston, check for scoring. If it is scored up your problem is a bit more complex. Another way to check for carb/fuel trouble involves removing the carb (you have) and putting a teaspoon (or maybe half for your little saw) of mix down the carb throat (hold the throttle trigger down to allow it to flow into the cylinder.)
