So.. after running the car to literally zero fuel the gauge was still showing a bit above 1/2 tank.

Since removing the floats is a pita... I was hoping that my last time solved the issue.

Little did I know that the float was binding on the jet pump assembly.

After putting some tension on the hoses and twisting the jet pump it was time to whip out the safety wire pliers and secure the jet pump as it was wiggling...
Those pliers dont see much use.. but create very nice results...

Here they are... resting after "once every 2 years" usage...

Frustrated enough.. it was time to put this problem to rest.
Since there was no gas in the tank.. I decided to do a empty-full-empty-full test.
20gal even was supplied.

After filling it up with 10 gallons the gauge showed a bit more than 1/4.

I've decided to fill it up to the max and to my surprise I coud fit about 12-13 gallons..
Emptied the tank again.
I run the fuel pump and pumped all the gas back into the cans.
Then I put some gas back in and decided to test the jet-pump.

I run the pump but... the jet-pump was pumping the fuel into the other side instead of sucking it out !!!

This is how the driver's side of the tank looks when the passanger's is empty.

Lesson of the day !!!
Dont be like this guy ^ drilling your jet-pump thinking it will make the fuel flow better.

New jet-pump is on order.
