Ehehe I thought I was the only one with that problem...yeah, apparently the counterbalance for the fuel gauge is either nonexistant or messed up. As a result, when I accelerate or get on an incline, fuel runs to the back of the tank, and when I decelerate or get on a decline, it drops down. It'll sometimes change from half-tank to empty on the same stretch of road.
Look at the gauge when you're driving level at a constant speed, or if your driveway is level, just leave it parked and turn on the ignition. If the fuel's had time to run back into your tank, that's the most accurate reading you can get.
BTW is there any way to fix that? It's very disturbing.
