Report: Fuel Level Sensor Failure
Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Problem
Average Mileage: 111,012 mi (36,001 mi - 235,000 mi)
It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.

Just after the warranty expired the fuel gauge started acting up. When you fill the truck up with fuel it tells me I'm out of gas. Sometimes when I hit a bump the fuel gauge will seem to work briefly. It does seem to work properly as the fuel in the tank gets closer to empty.

Fuel gauge is erratic and not accurate. When I stop the gauge goes to empty and the low fuel light comes on.
After driving several miles, it will correct itself but the same thing happens when I stop. Dealer says it could be two different things causing the problems and each one is $500 to fix each one. Other people I know have the same problem. General Motors needs to do a recall. I'm keeping track of my milage.
Fuel sensor gauge never reads correctly. It continuously jumps between full and empty while I'm driving or while I'm at a light. I have to use keep track of how much gas I actually have by keeping track of how many miles I've driven since the last fill up. Chevrolet needs to do a recall of this issue.

erratic fuel gauge. Drops to empty at stop lights and sometimes when driving down a smooth stretch of road. Not fixed yet.
Haven't fixed it, I keep track of miles driven to know when to get gas. It's annoying...
