Re: fuel guage display ( LCD)
If you have the tupperware off, it is an easy task to remove the sender from the fuel tank, I recently had a problem caused by the fuel fill nozzle at the gas station, it dented the tube around the float, and caused the float to hang up and not register full, actually only registered a little less than half full. I removed the sender, and it was obvious that the tube was dented in, I had seen on this forum about people taking the tube off and rounding it out again with various tools, but I couldn't see how to get it off, I ended up massaging the tube round again, and it was amazingly easy, the metal of the tube is pretty soft. I could then tip the tube upside down and hear the float going up and down inside. You may have dented it just enough that it hangs up, but not enough to stop it. might be worth an inspection....careful, not a good idea if the tank is real full...
