Riviera Fuel Gauge Information Needed

Guest Davii

Recommended Posts

I am the owner of a 1969 Rivi. . .my question is this:

"When the ignition is turned off on the car, should the fuel gauge indicator fall back to

the "E" (Empty) setting, or was it designed to sit on a point that reflects the amount of fuel actually in the tank?"

Thanks in advance for any information you might provide!

. . . not sure about a '69, as the fuel system is different - from the '68 Shop Manual:

" When the ignition is turned off, the pointer may come to rest at any point on the dial (...guage)."

So I don't think this is an indication of how much fuel is actually left in the tank Steve.
