gauge showed just below a quarter...which the right side tank had, left side went empty...one of our company trucks went by, I got him on the radio but he said he didn't have a hose so couldn't help and he didn't stop..couldn't believe it, sure not like how it used to be with drivers helping each other out...was only 8 miles out of town ffs

I'm sorry but I'm a little confused. What is up with the fuel gauge and tanks? Does the gauge only show one tank or the other and not the combined levels? If one tank still had 1/4 tank then why did you run out of fuel?

some trucks (frieghtliners et al) with two tanks only show on the gauge what is in one tank, there is a crossover line that connects the two tanks so theoretically the levels will be the same, assuming you are on relatively flat ground...
the truck above is a Peterbilt model 379 and every one of them that I've driven has had two tanks, one fuel gauge, and a three-position switch on the dash to show either the left, right, or avg of the two...on this truck there is something wrong somewhere, the switch or idk, but only shows me the right side tank...however since I have the ability to physically remove the fuel caps and peer inside with a flashlight it is ultimately my fault it happened...sad smiley
I've driven a couple of different Volvos and they have a visual and audible alarm when you get below a quarter tank...that makes a lot of sense to me...

also, it was actually relatively easy to get it going once I had fuel in the tank, just sprayed a bunch of ether into the breather while cranking the engine until it started...I've seen other trucks run dry and take a lot more effort to get them going again, worst I saw was a Detroit, had to use a special pump to prime the system and about a whole can of ether..

I thought something like that but wasn't sure. I hope the owner gets that fixed.
