    yes i know its a common problem and ive searched on here for a solution . also hope this is the right place for this thread .
    after about a week and 80 miles of owning the car i noticed the fuel gauge was still on nearly full (not all the way over like when one normally goes out). i filled up with 18 gallons of gas and is twitched a bit but basically stayed put . the ground wire looks ok coming from the tank . also took the tan wire from inside the trunk and grounded it with ignition on . instead of going to empty like a working gauge would it went from nearly full
    to past full .
    am i missing anything obvious before i let the tank down and check the wire on top of the sender and if bad replacing it
    thanks guys
