Gas Gauge Freightliner M2

I have discussed it before that my gas gauge is way off, light comes on and when I fill it up it takes 50 gallons.

Well doing some research I found the following and thought I would share.

Freightliner draws from the drivers side tank and has a transfer tube from the passenger side.

Now the weird part. According to various online sources if we fuel the passenger side first then the drivers it will show a more accurate gauge. Havent tested it yet, but a lot of Jayco owners and other M2 owners said it works.

Please let me know how this works out for you. I have owned a Jayco Seneca and now a DX3. Have heard of lots of different fixes but never this one. ??

At truck stops I use both fuel hoses and fill both tanks to the top.. never had inaccurate readings.

Dont put GAS in your M2! (Sorry I couldnt resist )

But in all seriousness I havent seen much issue. I usually stop at double pumps so I can pump both sides at the same time. I pretty reliably get about 25 gal per quarter tank showing on the gauge.

Now that's all after the drive home when I stopped twice without realizing the transfer pump only runs when the unit is on. Took me a little while to figure out why I was only get 3/4 tank each fillup...

I use double pumps but have done drivers first then passenger. Cant wait to try this new crazy way.

Are you serious that I shouldn't use gas? That is probably my main issue. LMAO.

Hehe it'll rock your world. I always joke that at truck stops with the big nozzles I can burn through $150 faster than I can wash my windshield lol

It is funny how quickly the numbers fly on the truck pumps. But it is easier then trying to get a big RV into the car pumps, I dont miss those days.

The DEF thing tucks me off, its too expensive at the pump. I bought a 55 gallon drum of it, and I carry 5 gallons with me to travel. Much cheaper.

Heh that works too. Pump is better than the 1 gal plastic bottles at least.

Save the world one plastic bottle at a time...
