the gas gauge in my truck moves back and forth when driveing and doesnt really stay in one place for long. Any one know why, its kind of anoying when you wanna know how much gas you have.[27]

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

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.
