Sounds like fuel sending unit. Have a 2001, when I top off fuel gage stays at empty then slowly creeps up.
first thing I would suggest, maybe run it till it's empty… you see the fuel light come on.Hi guys I just found my 2012 Escape having a weird problem: It started when one day I found the panel showing my gas tank was completely empty (it had about half gallon gas 2 days ago, showing "10 miles to Empty"). But when I go to gas station it only take about 9 gallon to full. Does anybody have an idea? Thanks a lot!
