2009 Laser 150 Fuel Gauge
« on: May 30, 2013, 11:23:55 AM »
Hi! I am new to scooters and just picked up the Laser 150.

I just fueled up for the first time and the gauge went from being in the middle to 'E' when it was full.

Is there a sensor or a float that I can check? Any help would be great! Thanks.

hi and welcome !
yes there is a sensor and it maybe stuck or not plugged in
or perhaps the guy who had it  before  siphoned gas
or  something  & bent the float arm.
1.check the connector's  connected and maybe see if there is any voltage  there
2. get a clean wire some what stiff and put a hook on it and see if you
can snag the float arm and lift it~ see if the gauge moves.
3. if voltage at connector and no change at the gauge when you lift the float
with the wire ~ you might need a new sensor. let me know if thats  the case
i don't think its the gauge itself since you say it moves and you will  confirm
when lifting  the float.
