1st) There is no indicator light for fuel level in an OHC

2nd) When the needle is bang on the red line, one can expect a maximum of 3 1/2litres.

3rd) The fuel guage is slightly sensitive but no where close to what iraghava has mentioned. iraghava: you need to get your guage fixed as I have atleast 10 other friends who own ohc's and never heard a concern as critical as yours wrt the guage.

4th) The needle has a tendency to go prolly a couple of mm's below the E mark, dont worry about that...just keep 2nd point in mind.

5th) The needle has a tendency to go beyond F mark when you top up...that is prolly due to the extra fuel the tank accomodates beyond the specified limit. The fuel tank according to the manual retains 45litres as its capacity however if you top up it will easily gulp 46+ litres!!!

the problem iraghava mentioned is normal, just that he got it all mixed up as to why its happening.. dont worry it not coz one wheel is up or etc.., the honda gauge grounding system is weird... whats happening is he is leaving the parking lights on and the ignition turned off, the fuel gauge creeps up automatically. Most honda's have this issue...

iraghava - inase the fuel needle rises even though the parking is off then an wolf mentioned you need to check it up.

Thanks for the advice Dom, never knew the grounding issue. But as far as I have noticed the issue is there irrelavant of the parking lights being on. Even if the car is parked in the day it happens & this has been the case from the beginning & she's about 3 years old now.

As per your advice I'll the mechanic have a look at it since she's gonna have a fuel pump replacement soon anyway.
