Fuel float

  • The fuel float is located in the fuel tank of the Jeep. It is made up of an arm, float, and a resistor that changes according to the position of the float.
  • The fuel float is used to measure the amount of fuel in the tank and display it on the fuel gauge.
  • The sender float is designed to float on the surface of the fuel inside of the tank. As the level drops, the position of the arm and float will shift and move a resist or which controls the display on the gauge
  • The fuel float is connected to a thin metal rod which is mounted to a variable resistor. The resistor resists the flow of electricity.
