erratic fuel gauge

have a bearcat with the electric fuel gauge, accurate only when full and after a short drive starts flashing the low fuel signal. May or may not come back with fairly, what I feel, accurate level indications once in a while but mostly not. Has anyone ever pulled the tank unit out and performed some magic on it to fix the problem? I am thinking the float may not be making good contact with whatever sends the signal to the cluster.

Having the exact same issues on my 2014 XF 7000 Crosstour. The AC dealer says there is some solution you can pour into your tank that removes the film. I don't know....Seems like a Mickey Mouse fix for a $10,000+ sled though.

Guy's I'm not familiar with snowmobile engines and I would figure their gauges are set up similar to the ATV's, but I've used Star Tron fuel addictive treatment before with good results or I've used Seafoam additive,it's worth a try first before tearing into the tank. Good Luck.

Thanks for the info guys. I use seafoam but just a splash every couple tanks to keep things clean. Had the sled to the camp for probably the last run this year and for some reason the gauge worked great for the last day. Will ask the dealer here if they have heard of the fix you mentioned.
