Hi All,

Just brought a 1998 E36 318i and at first everything was fine, the fuel gauge was showing a quarter of a tank and so we pulled over at the next fuel station and flled her up, however since refilling the car the fuel gauge is now constantly switching at random intervals between reading a full tank of petrol and being on reserve, this started as soon as starting the car again once we had refuelled the car. Any advice on what this might be and any remedies to this issue?

Likely a duff fuel sender unit in the tank or a short in the cabling to it. Check any related fuses in case they are not seated correctly.
