Re: Fuel Gauges

Well, if the fuel is sloshing around, the sender float could easily be
lower than with the fuel at "rest".  I've noticed a slight drop in the
fuel gauge while charging ahead at a full head of steam (how many
metaphors can I mix into this brew?).  Could this be to make me paranoid
about running out of fuel and take my fut off the peddle?????
