Most likely the sending unit. Fuel contains sulfides which attacks the silver on the sending unit board that the sweep arm connected to the float makes contact with.

I've had good luck using Cheveron Techron Plus Concentrate additive that supposedly keeps that crap from building up.

Easy enough to pull It from the tank and check the sending unit.


Thanks Ron. It looks like the board surface is right up there in the fuel. nice. At least it will be easy to inspect after removal.

Anyone have success cleaning the junk off the board? Would the Techron Plus work at this stage to clean it with once out of the tank or is there some other cleaner that's better for this?
