red fuel light blinking - cj7george - 08-13-2008

Today I put half a tank of gas in the gl1200 and for some reason it caused the red fuel light to blink on and off for miles. This annoyed me to the point that I stopped and filled up the rest of the way and sure enough its out now. The light wasn't on when I initially got fuel so this was weird. Has anyone experienced this? I am thinking that maybe the float was stuck or something or maybe the fuel nozzle touched the sensor in the tank?

The float was probably sticking as I don't believe it's possible to touch the float with a gas nozzle!

question: the fuel gauge was reading empty? or was actually giving you an accurate/estimated reading?

The fuel level was reading half tank after my initial stop for fuel and thats when the red light started blinking, weird. It went out after I stopped and filled up the rest of the way. This makes me hope that it doesn't come on at half a tank i know its no big deal but it drives me bonkers.
