Question

When I have a turn signal on, the gas gauge moves back and forth slightly and then eventually drops down to "empty". When the signal clicks off, the gauge returns to normal. Anybody experience a similar problem?

As always with the dash problems, check the grounds. Then check all connections.

I'll check it out. Hopefully it's something that will jump out and slap me in the face. Thanks for the input.

Yep, grounds. Check the upper-center screw on the dash pod. This is the ground connection for the pod and can easily cause problems.
