OK, Guys. I pulled the fuel gauge sensor tube this morning. No dents no dings no scratches no deposits (no returns). I put my trusty Fluke 179 meter on the connections and with the tube upside down I read 4.9 ohms and with it upright I read 77.8 ohms. Seems good to me. After looking in the fuel tank I am now questioning changing the fuel filter although I will probably do it since I am so far into tupperware/tank removal. WTF guys?
