I have a 1997 SLS with 36K miles. The fuel gage is not working properly It jumps around frequently and it changes after you turn the car off and then restart it. I moves up to 1/4 either way. I ran outta gas between 1/4 and 1/8 reading. I just ran a full tank with Techtron. No improvement. I guess I'm another of those dummies who hopes for a miracle in a bottle. Besides filling up when it reads 1/4 or watching the trip computer does anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Fuel Gage 1997 SLS
A 1997 requires a total fuel tank drop. Look for a DELPHI, Airtex, UltraPower fuel pump module in www.rockauto.com. The modules come with the pump, ( ?? fuel tank pressure sensor ??), level sender, float/arm, and primary filter - and maybe an upgraded electrical connector pigtail.
Take the advice to replace the entire unit - you won't want to do this again.
