Restored top bar in RID fuel gauge


Since I had the tank open to replace the fuel filter anyway, I
decided to see if I could make the fuel gauge show all the way full
rather than missing the top one or two bars. I had previously tried
cleaning the wiring connectors for the tank and RID with no effect.

The potentiometer had a thin layer of black smudge mostly over the
upper part of the range (VDO in their wisdom made a full tank read
as little as 3 ohms :-/ ).

I gently wiped the potentiometer down with brake cleaner and now the
RID fuel gauge works like it is supposed to!
