Gas Level Light Out

Ever since i have had my truck the gas level light has not worked. so whenever it is night and i have my lights on i cant see how much gas i have. i dont know if it went out with the previous owner and they never fixed it or if it never worked. is there any easy way to fix this?

thanks

I'd replace all the bulbs if your going to just replace the one.

And, if you want to go LED or not, decide that.

I'm not sure if standard LED's dim though..

If you just do reg. 194 bulbs, don't forget to wipe them down with rubbing alcohol. Helps from them overheating and blowing pre-maturely.
