My code worked last week but now all of the sudden things stopped working and I need help. I keep getting this Conversion Failed when converting the varchar value '488.8 to data type int.

SELECT [sa-hist].[cust-no],

CASE WHEN CAST((sa.[sa-fields__1]) AS INT) = ''
THEN '0'
ELSE CAST((sa.[sa-fields__1]) AS INT) END AS Fuel

,CASE WHEN CAST((sa.[sa-fields__2]) AS INT) = ''
THEN '0'
ELSE CAST((sa.[sa-fields__2]) AS INT) END AS LPFuel


FROM
sa AS sa INNER JOIN
[sa-hist] AS [sa-hist] ON sa.[sa-no] = [sa-hist].[sa-no]


WHERE ([sa-hist].[sa-type] LIKE 'F%')


I know the fields (Fuel and LPFuel) holds other values like dates and numbers and the Varchar is (220)

Do something like this:
SELECT CAST(CAST('488.8' AS FLOAT) AS INT);
Also, if you must, change those case expressions like in the example below, but it is not really required, you can just use the double-casting as I showed above without the case expression:
CASE WHEN  sa.[sa-fields__1] = '' THEN 0
     ELSE CAST(CAST(( sa.[sa-fields__1] ) AS FLOAT) AS INT)
END AS Fuel ,
