Some older senders are common for false reading. You could try bending the rod the floats on till it reads better. Years ago a VW dealer would of had the correct tool to test the sender but I bet they ain't now! The one on the mk1 Polo stays on full for a while then drops like a rock (exploiting its 130 brake makes it fall even faster!) but I just live with it. The one on my triumph was gash... bought a new one for 65 and it was worse!
