STARTING THE CAR THE FUEL GAUGE GOES BACK AND FORTH FROM FULL TO EMPTY
Fuel gauge does not read how much gas i actually have. It could be on empty but it says its full

Goes to full then empty soon afterwards right after you start it up. Then it will slowly attempt to find the correct level as your driving.

start car gas gauge jumps up to full empty and shows full.
Never know if i have gas on my car. Fuel gauge does not work. Gas light comes on right after i put gas into my car. Nothing has been done
The fuel gage stays at Full, unless I am parked at a slant, then it goes down to empty. Even if there is gas in it.

Fuel gauge does not work. When car is in park it gives a rough estimate of gas in thee car. When car is in drive, the hand will always go straight to full. IF gas light comes on then the gas hand will go straight to empty.

The needle on my fuel gauge doesn't read correctly. One winter (it was a particularly nasty winter, but) it just stopped working. The gauge will read full, or it will read empty and the "low fuel" indicator will come on. When the car is idling, the needle will fluctuate up and down between those two extremes. Seems like the needle might read somewhere close to the correct level when I'm driving. Unfortunately, I've never had the chance to get this problem diagnosed and fixed, because this car is nickeling-and-diming me to death. If it's not one thing with it, it's another. I have been experiencing some shaking and shuddering when idling. I suspect a fuel pump issue. Isn't the fuel gauge reader part of the fuel pump assembly inside the gas tank?...
full gauge goes from full to empty continously

Ill put gas in my car and as soon as i stop at a light my gauge would go from full to empty an i cut my car off and the gauge would go back to full

If tank is full, it doesn't float. Once it hits 3/4 it goes from full to empty the entire time it's running. Only reason I know when I'm low on gas is it'll drop all the way down long enough for gas light to come on. Not fixed yet
fuel gauge goes to F then to E all the time
