    YOU NEED TO HAVE THE CIRCUIT TESTED TO DETERMINE IF ITS A WIRING PROBLEM A SENSOR PROBLEM OR JUST A CORRISION PROBLEM. I CAN'T ADVISE YOU ANY MORE TILL YOU HAVE THAT INFO.BY THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE AN EST FROM THE AUTO REPAIR SHOP. SOUNDS LIKE THE GUY JUST GOT A CODE AND REPLACED THE PART. THATS THE PROBLEM HE NEEDED TO TEST THE CIRCUIT AND FIND THE REAL PROBLEM. SORRY

    I was the one who replaced fuel pump and sensor it is just that the needle is just all over the place with less than a full tank.

    what I did was install an UltraGauge. as long as you are correctly entering the gas you put in, I have found it to be extremely accurate to less than 1/2 gallon. Keep in mind it is not sensing the fuel in the tank, it is computing burned fuel based on all the sensor readings.
