93-97 4g f-body's fuel gauge's kinda suck!read's way past full and 1/8 th to a 1/4 when empty....:banghead:
i was wondering what if i filled it up ALL the way then pulled the needle off the face and put it back on pointing at the F,if it would actually read empty so i would have a few gallon's in reserve:thumbsup:

It's a combination of a poor gauge and sender in the tank that causes the problem. Changing where the needle points is not going to help. Just use your trip odometer, reset to 0 every time you fill up, and check your gas mileage as a baseline measurement, so you will know how far you can go before fill up.

However, with fuel injected, pump in the tank cars, it's a good idea never to let tank get below about a quarter.

I tryed fixing mine when i installed a racetronix fuel pump and hot wire kit. Worked for like a week then went back to the norm of not reading right. Its just a 4th gen thang.
