The sensor could be faulty. Try replace it, clear the codes see if it comes back. Possibly a cheap fix

Is it easy to change the sensor my self?
Obd reader clears it but comes back on again ;(

Probably better to take it to a trusted local mechanic with proper diagnostics.

Get a fault code and go from there.

Are you sure it was a fuel temperature sensor A?

Wasn't fuel pressure or lambda?

Either way if the car is possibly over fueling then you need to get it sorted as you could cause other problems.

What kind of vehicle is it?

If it is a diesel and it is over fueling then it will likely kill the DPF and probably produce excess soot.

Can't see it being that healthy for the EGR or Turbo either. And if it is a common rail then it could cause other issues.
