The VDO Fuel Tank Sending Float installs in to the top opening of the fuel tank of 1968 through 1977 Standard Beetles, 1974 Karmann Ghias and 1973 through 1974 Things. The sending unit has an electrical connection which sends a resisted ground signal to the gauge to provide the reading. The sending unit outputs 73 (empty) to 10 (full) Ohms and includes a new gasket.

Fuel tank sending units most often include a sending unit seal from the manufacturer. Unfortunately, on occasion they forget to include one. If that is the case, we will be happy to send out a replacement. If you absolutely must have the sending unit seal, add one to your cart along with the sending unit. We’ll be happy to credit you for the seal if you end up with two.

It is not uncommon for new fuel gauges to read at 1/4 or even 1/2 full at empty. There are 2 adjustments holes on the back of the fuel gauge, the range adjustment at the top, and the zero adjustment at the bottom. Both can be used along with the stops on the sending unit to adjust the gauge. If you have any questions regarding the adjustment feel free to give us a call.
