    Angry fuel tank?

    is there a way to stop the naff fuel guage from telling me i have just under 1/4 of a tank when i got 5 miles worth ? or shows light (flashing ) when i have more then it says there is in the tank. i know it differs depending on what side of the curb i park on . Any solutions?

    Sounds like your tank gauge has a problem ... OR the tank needs cleaning ... I get about 30 miles out of mine when the light comes on ....

    Personally I'd take it to a garage ..... until I watched them do it ....

    But wait around a while .... someone will be along with a step by step ...
