Does anyone know where I can get a refurbished fuel Guage for my 99 lexus gs300.  Replaced all the fuel level sending units and still half tank when tank is empty

It seems you’ve already taken steps to address the issue by replacing the fuel level sending units. However, if you’re still experiencing inaccuracies with your fuel gauge, here are some suggestions:

  1. Check the Fuel Level Sensor: The fuel gauge’s accuracy heavily relies on the fuel level sensor (also known as the fuel sender). Ensure that it’s functioning correctly. If not, consider replacing it.

  2. Inspect Wiring and Connections: Faulty wiring or poor connections can lead to inaccurate readings. Examine the wiring harness and connectors associated with the fuel level sensor. Repair or replace any damaged components.

  3. Fuel Tank Inspection: Sometimes debris or sediment can accumulate in the fuel tank, affecting the fuel gauge’s accuracy. Consider having the fuel tank inspected and cleaned.

  4. Calibration: If you’ve replaced the fuel level sensor, ensure it’s properly calibrated. Incorrect calibration can lead to inaccurate readings.

Now, regarding refurbished fuel gauges, you have a few options:

Remember to verify compatibility with your specific model year (1999) when purchasing any replacement parts. If you’re uncertain, consult your vehicle’s shop manuals or seek professional assistance.

Hopefully, these steps and options will help resolve the fuel gauge issue in your Lexus GS300.
