    Default fuel sending unit

    Does anyone know the range of the fuel sending unit in a 1982?

    Example.......Empty __ohms............Full __ohms

    Thx, Jimbil

    Thanks for the answers guys,

    If it's in the book I can't find it.

    And 90 ohms if correct would only be part of the answer.

    I believe Corvettes use the same type of sending units as most GM vehicles. According to this source, 1965 and newer GM cars use a 0 (zero=empty) to 90 (ninety=full) ohm sending unit.

    Thanks Bob,

    I will use those numbers to see if I can tell why my low fuel lamp is not

    coming on with about 2 gallons in tank.

    Much easier than pulling sending unit out of tank
