I'd check the pin on the connector and make sure the connector is well seated before buying a new float assembly.

If possible, check the readings with a multimeter.

I manage to lift up the gas tank and have a look at the connectors, they all seem to be pretty securely fastened so I just made sure they were by pushing the connectors again, since I don't have any sort of meter to check with, I'll bring it to the garage tomorrow to let them check the sensor and float thoroughly. Will post the result/findings (and photos hopefully) in here for anyone that's interested to find out what's the cause.

The 'feelers' that contact on the circuit board to pass current that indicates the fuel level looks alright but the reading seemed to be intermittent when tested at the normal 'full' fuel position.

Could be wear and tear or just some minor manufacturer defect on it, seems weird that it only occurred after 10,000km on the odo, so it's passed warranty (damn it). The mechanic was not keen on messing with the sensor, afraid he might damage it by doing so.

To change a new sensor is too pricey and totally not worth the money, so I'll just leave it as it is and continue to use mileage to counter check against fuel levels.

Thanks again for all your input/advice.
