    Limescale on the sensor messes mine up, I've put in a alloy plate with in the bottom of the tank bonded to chassis now, and this scales up first, easier to clean.

    An alloy plate may collect the scale, but I prefer not to use water that has been contaminated by too much contact with aluminium.

    True, I'll change it to stainless steel.

    My water gauge hasn't been showing a true reading for about a year now... it's a standard old needle gauge. Even when I fill the tank to overflowing, it still says I have little more than half a tank. The gauge seems to come to its senses when I'm down to about 30 litres, so it keeps pace again until I'm actually running out. Annoying but I'll live with it because the tank is really tough to get at and it might just be something daft like the little needle sticking behind the perspex!

    I's most likely the sensor in the tank causing the problem, so if you cant get to it then you're snookered.

    The are temperamental, The one in my Autocruise never went wrong in the 4 years I had it. I live in a hard water area and this does affect the one in my swift a lot.

    The water level guage in my current van has always worked perfectly, as did the on in the previous van. The one before that didn't have a water lever guage until I made one for it, but it did have clear pipes up the sides to show the level.

    My current van's waste tank.level guage is unreliable. I ought to clean the sensor up, but it's not a nice job.
