    Fuel gauge up an down like a whore's knickers

    Does any one else have this happen to theirs?

    I can get in the car and the gauge will be near empty. I'll drive to the shops or something and shut it off, get back in and the gauge is higher. Then sometimes the light will come on, then go off again.

    Is it a dodgy gauge or just an astra thing?

    It's the vauxhall lottery. Bare in mind that anything under 20 miles on the MFD is running on borrowed time

    I know if i park on uneven ground it'll have different readings on the gauge, and if it's really low even going round a corner could put the needle up or down.

    This thread's not helping you would have to see it.

    Thread lock please!! lol

    Ok a straight answer to your question. As autosparks said it is standard thing with vaux. below 1/4 the gauge is as much use as a choc fire guard.
