Gas gauge off by a tick?

Does anybody else have a problem with their gas gauge going up or down by a tick? It usually goes down, rather than up and it can happen while I am driving or in park. I know this has happened on other jeeps before, but I have not seen it in this forum.

Thanks

I have had this happening lately.
If i wait for my light to turn on I can fit 11.8 gallons of gas in it.
I also had my light on one day, and a 1/4 the next.
This is while sitting stationary on a flat surface too.

I have seen this on mine. It will drop an 1/8 - 1/4 of a tank while driving, then when you shut off the car and re-start it the guage will go back up. I have taken it in twice for this, They say it never does it for them.
Good luck to anyone with this problem, we better get used to it because they aren't going to fix it.
