Are the wagon and sedan fuel tank sending units the same? And does any one have the Napa part # for the wagon/sedan unit.

The wagon and sedan units are different.

Also different depending on year.

I'd call Dal to get the right part number you need.

I have seen guys replace the sending unit because of inacurrate fuel gauges, and that is not the fix all it results in is spending a lot of money for no real improvement. Maybe you want a new one for another reason but thought I would throw this out there since it seems to be the main reason people ask about it.

Hack(as in this forums owner) offers a kit that is supposed to make the gauge much more linear think it costs like $60, someone else is offering a $10 kit that while it may not make it more linear makes an improvement by bringing a full tank down to the full mark as opposed to an 1/8th inch past it.

Yep. I had to replace my sending unit, and it did not fix the fuel gauge problem, it just shifted it from reading way low to way high.

Why, you ask, did I have to replace my sending unit? Well, while I was installing new amps in the rear, I DRILLED A HOLE IN A FUEL LINE. Oops. Oh well, live and learn...

The Gas-rite fix allows you to adjust the minimum & maximum gauge readings. It's more versatile than Brad's, but it costs more.

Just know that neither the active fix or Brads passive fix make the gas gauge linear. So my choice is the $15 simple and effective fix.
