The gas gauge has been acting weird, ever since I got my Cat back in January. The tank holds 18 gallons. Yet when I fill up, the pump cuts off at around 10-11 gallons. Itll sit on the E for a long time, still has 8-9 gallons when it hits E apparently. Do you guys think its the gauge? If not, what else could it be?

These cars where made for European pumps. I put the pump in the car, lock it on and then just hold it sideways. The car fills up everytime now. Before it was doing the same thing that you talking about. Nothing is probably wrong with the gas gauge, just something they should have changed.

the fuel filler neck had to be redesigned when the car was exported to america to accomodate emissions vapor return lines and so forth.. this is a very common problem that has been well documented..
