Default Chevy fuelpump Pop210

The fuel gauge on my 1995 Roadtrek pop 210 does not register, !995 Chevy G30 extended van with 33 gal tank and 350 engine. i do not have any where convenient to lift van to drop tank to change fuel pump assembly. Has anyone accessed the top of the tank by cuttting the floor panel between the bunks over the tank. I think this should provide enough room to change out the fuel pump. Comments please 95Pop210

I am curious about this also, for my 2008 Chevy 210P. Possibly no one answered because it might not be a viable way of changing the pump. I have read that some early models have a door or hatch in the floor for this purpose, but I have not been able to get any details.
Cutting a hole might be more effort and/or involve more problems than dropping the tank.
I would hope that someone with experience doing the change out could comment.

The tank is likely in front of the rear wheels and the sender unit nearer the front of the tank. Also the tank is usually offset to one side but still inside the frame rails. The floor between the bunks is over the rear axle and drive shaft on the two B vans I've owned.

thanks for your reply. Once the weather in Indian breaks I will try to locate the tank versus the floor space

The fuel gauge on my van stuck on half once when it was new to me. I had driven 483 miles since the last fill-up and was wondering about it a bit figuring the gauge would have to drop soon. Then suddenly it bounced around between empty and full and finished up on empty! I had maybe 2.5 gallons or so left in the tank. The gauge has worked fine since then thankfully.

I reset a trip meter on all my vehicles when I fill the tank.

I know I can get 500 miles or so out of a full tank with my diesel van but make sure to fill up before 400 miles or so elapse. If you know the capacity of the fuel tank and also know your van's average MPG you could make do without the fuel gauge for a bit.

The trip monitor is working and that is what I use, 33 gallon tank 12 mpg therefore stop at 250 is very safe. But I don't like the fact the the fuel gauge does not work.
