Greetings @ll Tiguans Owners/Fans

I have an issue with Fuel gauge in my New VW Tiguan 2022

Fuel gauge is not working correctly after refuel. It is still showing that refuel is needed.
At this moment for almost full tank, the fuel gauge shows me that it is empty (no fuel)

Did someone of You had this kind of problem/Issue?

I have seen this comment before, usually when filled with small amounts. Is this your case or did you fill it a large amount at once?

I don't think it's a fault, just the way it works expecting a significant volume at once.

It is always possible yours does have a fault, but I've not seen this with a new tig, only many years old.

We purchased our 2022 Tiguan 3 weeks ago and experiencing similar problems. Our dashboard reads we have 1/4 qt tank left after a full gas fill this morning.

Will be taking it tomorrow to the dealer. Will update later :(
So... after a few hours the fuel guage slowly changed to full tank. Our dealer just told us to come back if the problem persisted. Now the dashboard is showing the engine light on :/

Cycle the ignition a few times. Ive also heard to some sending units stick at the bottom when you run them to fumes. Find a bumpy road if the key cycle doesn’t help. Also be known these have 2 tanks essentially that straddle the drive line so if you only put in a few gallons. One tank has a bit of fuel and the other side is still empty so your dual sending units average out the fuel. So one sees fuel the other doesn’t so its splitting hairs and not moving the gauge. It is advised of you only put a few bucks in to run off the top of the tank and not the bottom as the sediment and water sits down there.

This literally just happened to me. I was on E, so I stopped at the gas station filled up 40$ and when I got in the vehicle, I was still on E. My vehicle is less than a week old.
If you have warranty take it to the dealership as soon as you can. Ours turn out to be a faulty fuel guage sensor but it took like 3 weeks to fix due to the dealership only having 2 mechanics.

This is happening to me AGAIN. I got my car serviced less than 2 months ago and they had to fix the gas tank indicator... my car smelled of gas for a while and now I will have to go through this again. I wonder if it's an issue on a lot of newer Tiguans? Mine's a 2021.

It does seem to be being reported from just the US. Maybe it's an issue specifically with you models guys.

This has happened to me for the second time in a month, and seems to do it when it gets cold. And the problem when it happens, it dis-engages the remote start system until the tank goes almost completely empty and the fuel light comes on; then you do a full refill and it resets. Defeats the entire purpose of having a remote starter. Regretting selling my Honda big time.

Yes - I am experiencing this issue with my new 2022 Tiguan (less 2k mileage). The gauge was showing 1/2 a tank so I filled it up. When I left the gas station after filling it up the gauge stayed at 1/2. So I went to a different gas station and tried to add more gas but the tank was definitely filled. This was the first time I had this problem.

I have a 2022 SE Rline Tiguan. I had this same issue at 6k miles. Dealer replaced the fuel sender and had the car back in less than 24 hours. Been working fine for the past 1,500 miles.

I find the gas gauge is not the best design. You have to look at it twice to see the dashes and how much fuel you have. Please give me one that looks like a gauge with a needle.

Hello all from Istanbul,
I am looking for a solution to fuel tank issue;
I am having fuel tank/gauge problem for last 3 years.with my MY2012 Tiguan 2.0 TDI
When the tank is full no problem.
When the tank is half and below, the fuel gauge still work correctly at the beginning. After the cooling water reached 90 degrees the fuel indicator shows no fuel while the tank half or below.
The car is regularly maintained, the VW service, they are suggesting to replace the tank itself, which i don't agree
It seems some of you might have not the same but similar problem. any suggestion wellcome,
Salutes from Istanbul
