Post Fuel Guage Stuck on Half tank as if Empty

Hi Guys,

3 weeks ago hosepipe from fuel tank to filter bursted (i guess normal wear & tear) and petrol flushed out instantly when i started the car. i could not figure it out as the fuel tank was still showing the half tank... replaced the pipe and tried som many times to start but would not, took it to nearest garage and found out tank is empty so filled the tank and fuel gage went all the way up and for days it did not move downwards and now would not go down from half tank... i would highly appriciate if someone could help please...

It sounds like the fuel level sending unit is bad. And it's probably just a coincidence that this happened at the same time as your fuel line failure. I suggest you find the proper forum for your car and those members can help you further diagnose and fix/replace.
