Help Brera Fuel Sender Problem

I suspect my fuel sender is sticking especially during this hot weather sometimes the fuel level warning light appears even though I have 1/3 tank left.

Anybody replaced theirs, and how easy is it to do.
How much would a new one be.

I think the fuel sender is an all-in-one fuel pump jobbie so you will need to replace the entire unit, probably somewhere in the region of the mid to high £200s at least if you want a new part. probably more like £50 if you got one from a breakers.

I know my fuel gauge the light comes on about the last mark above empty (is that a 1/8 mark?), which is still a hell of a range to me, though it takes the needle to drop to about half of that before I get a message on the dash that tells me I've got limited range!

If you think you've got a problem you can always try the hillbilly trick of brim to empty and see if it washes itself off.
