Well, it seems that my crazy gas gauge has somehow managed to fix itself. When I originally purchased the car (used with ~6k miles), it used to go from full to empty and so forth for the first 25-50 miles everytime I filled the tank. The last four fillups have not had any crazy fluxuations like that.
The car now has approx. 12500 miles on it now and doesn't do it anymore. The only kind of gas I have been putting into it the last 6000 miles has been Chevron Super-unleaded.
Just wondering, has anyone else had this happen?
I have the problem when I do not use Chevron. After a fill up with Chevron the problem goes away. Always happens when I use another gas and let the car sit for a few days with the gauge at anything but full....strange.
