I recently had my fuel pump replaced in my '02 axiom. The problem i'm having is its not sending the correct level to thr display. recently i was driving and the display read 70 miles to empty. I was shocked when all of a sudden it stopped accelerating, I thought the transmission was gone or something. I just went into limp mode, wouldn't do over 5 mph. I managed to limp home and pour some gas from my lawnmower 1 gal bucket, and it started going again. I went to the gas station and refilled the gallon jug and the tank and its fine now. Is there a way to recalibrate the display so when it say 50 miles to empty i can go at least 40 to fill-up?. Before i replaced the pump i could go up to 80 miles when it says 50 to empty, guess i was on the reserve. Now there is no reserve or accurate reading. Thanks for any and all help.

I can't speak to the fuel pump issue, but I know these senders seem to be sensitive. After a four-wheeling trip in my '04 Axiom, I noticed that the gas gauge seemed to hit empty a lot faster and the Miles To Empty reading on the dash seemed to drop quicker. I checked the gas tank for any dents that would account for a lower capacity, but there were none. I just think the sender was jostled on my trip.
I'd ignore your display and just keep track of how many miles since you filled up. If it's been more that 275 or so, time to find a gas station. Good luck.

I already replaced it, was just wondering if it could be calibrated for a more accurate reading.
