Fuel Level sensor reads low

Hey Guys,
My fuel sensor reads about an eighth of a tank low even though the tank is full. My guess its going bad (or dirty) Has anyone changed it or found any cleaner to put in the gas tank to (clean) fix the problem?? I know it is attached to the fuel pump and probably can not be changed on its own. Where did you get a new one at a good price?





Thanks!!

I've used this 3 times and it's worked like a charm.

Advance Auto Parts has 2 for $10 at the moment.

It will fix it if there are deposits on the sending unit. I believe some manufactures state to use it in TSB's to correct this problem.
