I'm afraid this is my pet subject. You may regret bringing it up!
My 156 has had a problem with its fuel gauge for a long time (over a year) but I don't think it's doing anything bad to the engine.
Mine is nearly always stuck at or near zero so I just use the trip counter to tell me when to get some fuel. The problem is the sender unit which comes as part of the fuel pump. Apparently, the whole unit has to be replaced.
Misdiagnosis and incompetence at the dealer (I've named them elsewhere in this group) have meant that the problem still has not been fixed.
The last time I took the car in for the work to be done, they turned me away because the fuel tank was full. They said this meant that the work could not be done but, of course, they had not bothered to warn me about this. The dealer is a two-hour return trip in heavy traffic. I was not very pleased.
Hope you have better luck. Best regards.
Get ready for the Saturday night...
