Answer 2
You have likley one of two problems, one is a possible gauge in the instrument cluster and the second is a fuel level sending unit and both are common.The fuel sending unit is availible seperate from the the fuel pump and many GM instrument clusters are available aftermarket. A tech II scan tool would be the way to test, but in many cases the gauge will be erratic and the sender will be inaccurate. -
