My fuel gauge is stuck on super full. I bought this car a couple days ago and it's my first mustang. Where should I check first to help me find the solution? Thanks

Very common problem. Have you gone through a full tank yet? Mine reads full until it gets down to 1/4 tank and then it works. Its most likely your sending unit located in the tank

I have not let my tank get low yet. Ill look into the sending unit thanks a lot ill let you know how that goes. Or should I run my car without filling up for a couple days to see if it moves to confirm this is the problem?

This is the same thing that happened to me. When I first got my mustang it was at about 3/8 full, so I filled it up all the way, the needle was past full. That was where it stayed too. I though/ hoped that I was just getting really good gas mileage, then when it hit 5/8s it started working. It works when it is getting low and that is when it needs too. It doesn't bother me, so it shall stay like that.

That's what I had to do with my Nissan. It worked but every time I get over 3/4 of the tank the needle slowly wonders up above full. It's a pita.

Thanks Guys at a quarter tank the gauge started working and the light came on.
Good deal. I would just let it be until you have a better reason to drop the tank, fuel pump issue or something like that.
