Ride: XH outback

Location: Melbourne
VIC, Australia

OK so trying to work out why my outback is only reading 3/4 full when at 100% full on both tanks and fuel lights come on early when little amount of fuel is used (its a bit annoying having 120lts and not confident in gauges)
first i would like to check the senders are reading correctly so does anyone know what ohms i should have at full and empty tank (done heaps of searches and could only find xf style)
second i can't work out how the senders switch ?
iv found the relays that switch the pump power and the fuel line switch
it seems that when i run one tank down then switch to the other sometimes it will read low to empty as well
gives me the s**t as i haven't worked out good enough economy figures to push the fuel light
TIA

if you see a xh outback blocking a lane on the tulla lend me some fuel :)

try getting into your instrument cluster codes might be able to check how many liters are in the tank.

but otherwise straight from the factory XH ute manual

empty - 10 ohms
warning lamp illuminates- 28 ohms
1/4- 40.5 ohms
half full - 66 ohms
3/4 - 95 ohms
full- 149 ohms
upper stop (88 degrees) 176 ohms

I have a hard copy of the original factory manual for the XH ute & Van. Ford part no. wm 37

at a glance I cant see any reference to the outback ute, possible there is a later supplement to this manual as I believe its printed somtime early 96'

but the wires to the main tank fuel sender appear to be.

black / dark green
yellow / dark green


ill have a better look in the next few days im off night shift so bit hard to focus
