    Is there any way to adjust a fuel sender externally using a variable resistor of som sort? I'm really no good at all with electric so I need a little help with some ideas on how to do this, Thanks

    P.S anybody got a good sending unit for a 31 gallon tank (tbi , 89 suburban) they want to part with?

    Fuel sending unit is 0-90 ohms empty-full.

    You can get a new sending unit from LMC Truck.

    The question is, why would you want to? I could see it if you were really anal about the gas gauge moving smoothly from full to empty on an odd sized tank.

    If it's not reading right, you just fix the problem, not band-aid it.
