Well if I could spell "gauge" correctly, I would have seen another post
for the same problem. In the previous post, one person responded
that this is normal for Camry's. If anyone has a different experience
I'd like to know.
My '92 Camry also takes a long time to climb to the full mark, but nothing
like 10 minutes. I would guess about 3-4 minutes. There is some
sluggishness built in so that the gauge doesn't not jump around when the
fuel sloshes in the tank.
On the other hand, my 2000 Avalon must use a different type of sender as
it instantly jumps to the full mark.
My 99 V6 Camry takes a considerable time to indicate a Full after refilling
but I've never timed it. On the other hand, the first time I filled at back
in the fall of 1998 I suspected a bad gauge. But, by the time I got home it
was nearing full and the next morning it was full. Always wondered if mine
was the only one until tonight!
I have a 2000 Camry with a 4 cylinder, automatic, 96,000 miles. It takes 20
minutes or so before it reaches the full mark. I've owned the car for over
4 years and its always been this way. I believe it to be normal.
