Hello, my name is***** will assist you with this. I do apologize for the delays in getting back to you. What is the depth finder that you are using? Is the fuel in the boat 2 yrs old as well?Can you see the top of the fuel tank where the sender is mounted?

my depth finder is part of other instruments on my gauge panel ,dont beleive its sensor is on lower unit, could never find anything,could it be mounted in hull?and yes gas is 2 yrs old with Stabil but still probably to long sitting in tank,would i have to drain it , is that something service shops do? im not familiar on tank how sender looks.
