Title: Fuel gauging system for a motor vehicle fuel tank

Abstract: A fuel gauging system for a motor vehicle fuel tank, including a housing (100) supporting a resistive element (200), an arm (300) pivotally mounted on the housing (100) and comprising at least one cursor (350) engaging the resistive element (200), and a lever (400) provided with a float connected to the arm (300) for monitoring the movements thereof. The system includes a housing (100) and an arm (300) which comprise complementary rotational guides (120, 310) and structure (316, 317, 318, and 319) to enable translation of the arm (300) on the housing (100). The arm (300) is combined with an L-shaped lever (400) so that one of the sections (420) defines the pivot axis of the device.
