I purchased an 07 F6 LXR yesterday. everything looks and functions great! the only thing that i did not notice when i was looking it over was that the digital gas gauge does not show up at all. I can see the outlines when the i start the machine, but the items never lite up, and i am a little concerned that my sending unit may need to be replaced. anyone have any Ideas?

Was it full at the time?
Some can have as much as a 1/2 tank of fuel but register empty.
If it has enough fuel, use a coat hanger or similar to gently raise the float arm a little bit to see if the gauge responds. Yes must be done while running.
If it goes up, float is bad.
If it does not, most likely sender or possibly gauge in the speedo head (speedo head is very uncommon).

Float is moving with no problem, it is sitting on top of the gas and moving with it appropriately. I looked in the tank with a flashlight as well. I have a little over a half tank. I attached a pic of my display to clarify what i am, well, what I am not seeing.
