i just bought a 1986 na... the gas gauge works fine but it isnt accurate... the other day it was reading a quarter tank so i went to the gas station and filled it up... it only took just under 10 gallons when it should have taken close to 14. today i let it go to empty with only 200 mile on that tank of gas and i saw taht the 1/4 to empty gauge works... what do yall think that the problem could be? i think it might be the fuel sending unit.

thanks

yep...you can either take it out and clean it...or replace...There used to be a write up on cleaning, like use a rubber eraser on the metal contacts, but I can't seem to find it.

As long as the 1/4 tank gauge works do nothing. My gauge stoped going down at 1/2 tank.
I ran a 82 that way for 2 years. It was not worth the effert, time or cost to me to try to fix.
