Gauges

Hey guys, my fuel and oil pressure always read full, the rest of my guages seem to be running pretty good. Very few times will the fuel gauge suddenly start to move towards the middle and dance there. I honestly dont know what im doing help please. Im tired of running out of gas in the middle of no where. Thanks. Oh an its a 1990

Did you clean the contacts on the back of the guages? Do a search on guages alot of info on here about it. Good luck I have to clean mine every few years to keep them working good.

you should really be re-setting your odometer trip when you refill so you will know when to refuel and not run out

If it's not supposed to move and does use duct tape.

fill it up the first time... then keep it full... 225 miles on a 20 gallon tank for me... so about every 50 miles you put 5 bucks in gas in will keep you going
