Default civic gas gauge

Any known problems with 02 gas gauge? Mine barely moves until I have driven
about 150 miles. I hit the half way mark at about 250 and average about a
total of 350 per tank. I'm about 2K away from the warranty expiring.

riz,

Are you following the manual exactly regarding fill-up?

I have the same situation with my 2001 Civic EX coupe. I bought it used late
last year, had it checked out by a mechanic first and he said it was in
great shape and I shoudn't pass it up. By the way, I didn't get an owner's
manual with mine.... What does it say in the manual concerning fill-up?

===============

It says: Stop filling the tank when the pump clicks off . . tighten gas
cap until it clicks.

1-800-782-4356 is the North American toll free numbet to order your
manual, or your dealer can get you one in a few days.

LOL. Actually, I hadn't read the manual...but I did this morning. It says,
"unscrew the cap, fill with gas until stops, put the cap back on." I'm no
rocket scientist but I think it's safe to say that I've been filling it
properly. My guess is that there is something wrong with the gas
gauge....which brings me back to my original question.....anyone?

On my 2000 Civic, I average 200+ mi in the first half and 100+ in the
later half of the gas gauge. So despite your gauge not moving till 150
miles have past, it seems to be operating normally. Not sure. Maybe my
gauge has issues as well.

My '88 Civic has a similar behavior. The gauge doesn't start to move until
after driving about 75-100 mi. The half tank mark typically yields about
260 mi. while I get about 400 from a full tank.

Ok, When I fill up, I don't stop filling when it stops. I keep going til I
can't put anymore gas in there. Til i see the gas come up close to the rim.
Maybe that's not the best idea? I have done this with all my cars in the
past and have had no problems.

Pretty much likewise for my 1991 Civic. The gauge won't move fully below the
"Full mark" until 100 miles sometimes. The half tank mark is hit between 200 and
300 miles, in general. I get about 440 miles between fillups in warm weather.
There's at least a gallon of gas still in the tank at most fillups, so
theoretically the car could get about 480 miles per tank between fillups.

Thanks everyone. I guess my gas gauge is working normally. Never the less, I
will continue to reset and monitor the trip odometer at every fill up!
