VU Cluster Fuel Gauge Settings

Postby megajuz3003 » Thu Dec 07, 2017 11:06 pm

does anyone have the standard settings for the Fuel Gauge resistance, after reprograming my cluster it only takes 15l to go from empty to almost full so I have no idea how much fuel is in the tank :lol: prefer if they are from a VU SS, not sure if there is a difference between body styles

The VU fuel configurations are actually a bit odd. None of the factory calibrations in tech2 seem to actually work. What did you select?

Umm I used body diagnostics, i just selected wagon/ute from the dropdown. The cluster came from a v6 sedan so quite a lot got changed to go into a v8 ute, I was going to try and work out what went wrong and msg you about it

does your gauge read straight off the tank or run through pcm

Body Diagnostics has loaded in it all the latest calibrations from the Tech2. I did have a picture of a VU fuel setup once upon a time... will be stored away on the R&D laptop.


Ahh, found it. See how it indicates 'unknown', which was read from a VU ute cluster

The attachment VU ute fuel map.JPG is no longer available



ahh when I read my original cluster it came up as sedan, so that's another thing that points me to it not being the genuine cluster, (the guage never read properly between 3/4 and full ) but I did find a screen shot of the new clusters settings I took when I did it,

biggest issue I have now is trying to change it, I cant afford to renew my subscription atm :cry:

Code: Select all
                      Empty         1/4             1/2           3/4           Full
------------------------------------------------------------------
Delta                |----35----||----22-----||----58----||----58----|

Current      57             92              114            172         230
STD         98             159            189            223         245

Delta               |----61-----||----30---||---- 34----||----22----|

Looks like the new values have it, it says I have just under 1/4 of a tank now so it should be right, so I'll put another 20l in it and see if it gives me half it tells me
