silversled can only hope to improve
were you filling the tank up? And how do you reckon the gauge is not indicating the proper level? It seems that this is a difficult issue to help with without more detail...it seldom jumps around? it shouldn't jump around right?
what?

nah i put 10$ in the tank. so it was under half a tank at $1.92 a gal.

i reckon its not indicating the proper level because on about 5 gallons ill get 95 miles more or less on the trip meter. and i fill it up with 10$ when the gauge gets in to the red. and lately its been above half a tank settling at 3/4 tank.

so no it shouldnt jump around. i was just driving it today showed 3/4 tank when i know its under 1/4 of a tank atleast.
