    Good point...I host stuff on imageshack but it gives a new link every time I upload. I'm not familiar with manipulating the system much beyond that. Guess I'll have to give it more thought. :facepalm :lol: I know....just keeping you informed....and I feel bad bumping this thread repeatedly just to update a list. On the other forum I just update the original post and the thread doesn't get bumped to the top.

    BTW...your P2A22 error is a good observation. I'll look that up in the book tomorrow and see what it says (I don't trust an internet search) and if I can reproduce it. Did you happen to notice any change after you cleared the code? ie. gas gauge reading changed?

    I responded on the other board so I'll copy and paste...;) With all due respect, I think we're talking about two different things here. The OP is talking about physically running out of fuel and the DME reporting incorrect fuel levels. As for the the float sensors...in Jstang's case since his issue only appeared recently...it seems as though his calibration may have walked it's way out? There are a few others that have had issues with their fuel gauge reading incorrectly but it's usually immediately after they've been in the tank. They fill up and the gauge only goes to 3/4 and then doesn't go below 1/4 tank. At this point, I'm honestly not sure what's causing it. I personally have had multiple pump configurations, float sensors, top hats....in my car and never had this issue despite regularly running my car near empty for pump changes and testing. A couple people that have had the issue have changed float sensors and the issue still persisted. So it doesn't seem to be a float sensor issue. A couple thoughts....the float sensor is just a resistor....when the tank is full IIRC it reads approx. 1000 ohms.....when it's empty, it reads approx. 50 ohms. There are two of them, one on the drivers side and one on the passenger side. If that resistance changes for some reason, your gauge will read differently. In some cases it almost seems as though the DME has been reset in that regard because even when those that have experienced it put their old float sensor back in...they still had the issue. Possible causes (brain storming here) 1. Float sensor itself (either one) 2. Float sensor wires 3. Pinched wires 4. Connectors at top hat (both sides) 5. Stuck float (either one) I'll try and play with some sensors tomorrow and see if/how I can influence their readings. My car is currently getting aligned...hoping to have it back tomorrow. If so, I'll play with INPA a bit as well. What it comes down to is that I haven't experienced this nor have any of my local customers as far as I know. I didn't really want to purposely mess up my fuel gauge just so I could try and fix it....but it looks like that's what I'm going to have to do. :lol:

    meowsauce replied to a thread xdrive front drives question in N54
    I saw you posted on the other forum about this....there's a thread there titled "Pulled my front drive shaft. Easy, no codes and RWD!" where a few have done this for a few thousand miles without issues. I'd be curious in a dyno before and after just to see the results.

    So maybe the 2 pump setup doesn't have to work so high pwm levels to reach the 72psi target, otherwise with stock wiring the 20amp fuse would be way too small. +After thinking a while the Steves relay control is actually fine, cause the pwm controlled pump will ease up after the twins has reached the target.

    My car fuel gauge did the same couple of weeks ago with brand new bone stock LPFP. Ironically, just after I saw the similar thread here :) On my case everything was fine after installation and then after 2 months, gauge was dropping only to 1/2 tank. I thought that I didn't do proper installation and something has moved to blocking the float movement. I tried JB4 1-5 menu to reset the gauges but nothing changed. Then one day, the temp gauge was set to show under/overboost and I was about to set the fuel gauge to show boost - both gauges freeze. When exiting the dash menu, fuel gauge was showing the fuel level & oil temp was showing the oil temp even the menus had set otherwise. So, parked my car and did the 1-5 (reset gauges) everything went back to normal. Since then the fuel gauge has been showing correct level.

    I just got my pump set up, it activates at 15 PSI via a Hobbs switch and 30 amp relay, the hobbs switch is under the hood and the relay is right off the battery with as short as possible 12 gauge wire to the pump. This is the correct way to do it, but I know Steve hates it, but I ran two 450's both wired into the factory harness for over 3000 miles and never blew a single fuse, so it is possible, but not the ideal set up. The way steve has it set up is perfect. I got lucky because I had a return style system set up on here a while back, and I had the foresight to leave my relay and all wiring in trunk, made the install pretty easy..:)

    Why are they cracking down so much on recreational drugs? While most their players probably take some sort of illegal PED.

    Got about 150 miles on it now, the pedal keeps coming up, so its not near as bad, this just concrets the fact if I used the high setting it would be perfect. The pedal feel literally blows me away how light it is, shifts are smooth, no jerks when taking off, so far so good, this will change the N54 MT high horsepower landscape

    I want to trash talk, but everything that comes to mind involves taking advantage of one's anus against their will -- over and over again to the point that if they swallowed a brick it would come straight out with ease, and i don't believe my first week opponent is on the board. with that said, good draft. Here's hoping i don't go through 15+ injuries like i did last season.

    Thanks for the info & have to say you have nice setup there, I was planning to make a kind of PWM booster for my 450 to ease up the current draw from the FPM but only if my car starts to blow fuses. Inevitable, I started to think (just out of curiosity) how the twin pump could be controlled via PWM... Zener diode & trimmer for the 2nd pump start-up control & mosfet for the PWM boost.

    I believe it was Verlander's account that got leaked. Which based on the pictures, this motherfucker got a bunch of side-bitches, which is crazy considering he is banging Kate Upton. Secondly, I wouldn't turn away Kate upton ever, but I think part of her allure was the whole tease. Never being able to see behind the curtain so to say with her. Now that allure is gone and she's basically not the goddess most guys built her up to be.

    Still waiting to hear back from Toolman, but I've been a little busy myself. Bought a Porsche Cayenne TT to turn into my DD instead of the X5, got the correct tools to remove the flywheel from my buddies M60 that I'm borrowing to mock the SC kit to, but I've been light duty for the past two weeks from a jet ski accident and then caught a cold, so I've been on my butt for a while instead of getting things done. Toolman, you're holding out on us! :D
