my truck does the same thing, mainly only when its past half, anything from full to half it stays calm but after than if i launch hard i can make it drop down to empty then it bounces back.....

there's a float inside the tank. it's on it's last legs, I suggest replacing it. Mine won't even read anymore, common Ford quirk

Mine won't even read anymore
got the same problem on my front tank. I just use the odometer

me too, but it sucks when you can't really put few bucks in at a time when prices really suck! I have to fill every time my exploder hits 400 and then reset the odometer.
hmm thanks for the help i gess ill have to take my tank apart.
