Fuel indicator for left tank reads 0 when the tank is full. On power up the CGR 30 goes from 0 to 1.3 then it backtracks to zero and stays there. This happened right after topping off the tank. Prior to the top off it read slightly less than the right tank – about 17.5 gal vice 18.5. The totalizer showed 6 gal of fuel burn which was correct per fuel receipt. This grounds the plane per the FAR.

Fuel sender was replaced with new on Right Wing – CGR30 was calibrated – aircraft checks verified working. Aircraft returned to service.
