Check engine light - fuel sensor code

Last fill up I kept pumping the fuel in until it was at the bottom of the fuel neck. The "check engine light" came on and I had the code read and it said "fuel sensor" which I took to be the overfilled condition. Is this correct, or is there something else going on? After my fuel is down to the 3/4 mark, will another reset of the code clear this out?

Opinions? Knowledge?

Thanks,
Tellicorick

I would write the code down, head to Advance, clear the code for free and see what it does.

You can afford to fill it all the way up? Must be nice to have that sort of money.

Not really

Who can? My PSD gets better mileage than my Land Rover Disco (which is for sale if anyone is interested), so I'm driving my truck (17.99 mpg city; easy on the throttle and boost). Fill up was for mpg test baseline; doing some mods and trying to come up with some actual numbers and percentages. Goal is a little better than 20 mpg city 'cause I hate the small car coffins. Nothing like being the victor in a car crash.

lol, tell me about!! We have a wind storm out in the gulf now... "GUSTAV" and now gas went up 15cents over night. What a F'n rip off. Blame it on the barrel spike... what about the downward spike? Prices didn't fall fast enough or nearly enough when oil was $112.
