Default Interesting read...and timely

Tonight I was making my regular 200 mile home from my office. When I left the office I had over a half a tank of diesel so I knew I did not need to stop for fuel. About 130 miles into the journey my car started losing power and the glow plug light started flashing. I pulled over to the shoulder of the highway and the engine stalled. Regular engine temp, a little over 1/4 of a tank of fuel remaining, no odd smells, etc...

I checked the engine oil and referenced owners manual. Engine control malfunction was the cause of the flashing glow plug light. I attempted another start and the engine acted like it was out of fuel?? How could that be the guage showed fuel..

I called a tow truck and had it pulled in. Service advisory hopped in the car to place into neutral to let it roll off the flatbed wrecker. I saw the low fuel light and empty fuel guage reading and asked him what is going on?

Has any else had a sticky fuel guage sending unit?? This is gonna make me puke if they have to replace the fuel system and possibly the engine,.
