neither of my E series have that, i'm stumped? Could it be some sort of thing that sits inside the filler tube and has fallen into the tank?

I have put the fuel pump back in, fuel gauge working again, diagnostic mode showed correct litres and sender resistance.

The pipe is sitting on my table until i find out where it goes, it has probably been floating around in the tank for a few days/years???. It had jammed the float down.

yeah its the anti syphon tube, I had the same issue, it fell from the filler pipe into the tank and fouled the level indicator, can be removed.. don't even try and put it back in, I tried thinking it was for something more inportant.

The back rubber dong can be removed from the back of your car now.

:lol: :lol: Well then it's been floating around the tank since I have owned the car. 4yrs. I have always had a bit of fuel surging out when filling the tank right up too the fill mark. It never really had bothered me until this happened.

I gave the surge pipe a new home... THE WHEELIE BIN :lol: :lol: :lol:
