Default Re: how to read gas gauge

dont feel bad, I cant really read a tape measure so we all have our faults



3/4 tanks is the mark just below fulll (to the right)
1/4 tank is the mark just above empty (to the left)
half or 1/2 is the middle mark at the top.
1/8th is just above the Empty but below the 1/4 mark (so in between E and 1/4)

I hope this helps.
