Post Fuel Sender Failure

Starting this thread, as I had a fuel sender failure a couple of weeks ago. 60k mi.

Basically: freeway driving, fuel gauge read 1/8 tank remaining, computer indicated "10 miles till empty" but the car ran out of gas. Fuel sender, in the fuel tank turned out to be the malfunction.

Towed to the dealer...they had never, ever seen this before and were very apologetic.

I get the car back next week, just want to bookmark this thread in case any members (God forbid) have this problem now or in the future.

I still have faith in my Lexus, but want to share as this failure was very unusual, and hopefully over time we can identify a trend and use this thread for information if need be.

What caused you to look at the "miles remaining" as I seldom do.

I seldom use that function as well. I checked it while I was sitting on the side of the freeway waiting for the tow truck.

I use it all the time. I find it very conservative.
