    Question Inaccurate gas readout?

    Why does the gas sensor on my 93 seville plunge to E and come back to accurate gallons? Seems to do this more frequently on turns. Is this normal? Is there a fix? Any feedback is appreciated.

    It shows E (empty) when you get close to 2 gallons. It will go back and forth for a while just like it does say, between 4 and 5 gal. How's the wall?

    Lol. Seriously though is that normal? It's really misleading during those "crucial times". Any advice?

    It is normal. The next warning will be the "fuel level is very low". It means you have less than I gal left. I would not recommend to run that low - it is hard on fuel pump.
