I installed a new fuel gauge from Autometer in my '68. The tank was full and the gauge registered way over full. I wasn't too worried at this point but I haven't driven the car very much at all because I am still restoring it. Mainly I crank it up for a little bit every week and maybe to move it in and out of the garage. Now all of a sudden it is registering almost empty. I watch everything very closely and I never saw it at the 3/4, 1/2, or even the 1/4 mark. Although when I turn the key on it slightly moves up to the "E". Let's just say for good measure that the car is close to empty, (I will check) but why the sudden change. Has anyone installed the Autometer fuel gauge and did it work with the system well? I will fill it up again and I assume the gauge will top out, but I would like to see the progress as it empties. Anyone ever come across this....
